Bourgogne Chardonnay La Tufera, Etienne Sauzet 2019

BW00319
A quite rich and opluent nose with a hint of butter. Great concentration for a humble Bourgogne Blanc, with plenty of white peach, pear and honey character and fine minerality for balance.

….”Why is Matthew Jukes telling us to buy a Bourgogne Blanc that he has banged on about for eternity and at thirty quid?” It’s a good question, but it is a lazy answer. I do not write this wine up in spite of its heritage and obvious skills every year. That would be lazy. I only call you to the table when it is worth it and in 2019, this wine is sublime. I will discreetly remind you that Sauzet is based in Puligny. Bonjour.

Product Details

The 2020 vintage was historically early and very possibly a great vintage. 2019 is a worthy successor to the excellent ‘18s, where low yields have given very concentrated wines. A seriously good vintage here in 2018 as the region escaped the frosts which have plagued recent years. They have a good crop of rich, aromatic whites across the region as a result. Despite a familiar and now all-too-frequent late frost in 2017 the growers in the Côte d’Or were better prepared and the vintage has delivered some excellent results, with many domaines back to ‘normal’ yields. In the Mâconnais and Chablis growers were not quite so lucky with yields down for the second year but wines of excellent quality. What there is in 2016 is very good but sadly frost and hail had a bigger than usual impact this year, particularly in Chablis and the Mâconnais, but almost no-one escaped unscathed. 2015 produced round, full whites with good, ripe fruit. 2014 started well enough with an early spring but a cooler than average summer, and hailstorms in the south, reduced yields. The resultant wines, however, have elegance and beautiful balance. A cold season in 2013 meant yields were low but good growers have produced some very drinkable wines. Another low-yielding vintage, 2012, gave some attractive wines but not much volume. The tricky conditions of 2011 gave some good juicy wines for short and midterm drinking. While the Burgundians favour the ethereal style of the succulent 2010s, they contrast well with the much riper, fleshier wines of 2009.
