Domaine Étienne Sauzet belongs to a terroir emblematic of the great white wines of Burgundy: Puligny-Montrachet. Named after its founder, the estate is still run by his descendants. Four generations of winemakers have passionately nurtured a vineyard composed exclusively of Chardonnay grapes. This age-old tradition has enabled Étienne Sauzet to produce the finest white wines in Burgundy: four Grands Crus and nine Premiers Crus in Puligny-Montrachet.
