An overtly fruity nose combines notes of freshly sliced pear with those of petrol and soft citrus nuances. There is fine volume to the plump, round and seductive flavors that offer acceptable length. Overall this is easy-to-like if a bit simple.
The Domaine Sauzet 2015 Bourgogne Blanc will drink beautifully from release, with a bit more mid-palate amplitude this year than in most vintages. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a ripe blend of apple, tangerine, a touch of almond, good soil tones and a gentle floral topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, juicy and forward, with good balance and respectable framing acids on the wide open finish. A good example.
The 2015 Bourgogne Blanc, matured in four-year-old barrels, has a slightly smudged, quite primal bouquet that needs to show a little more energy. The palate is crisp on the entry with good acidity, although the finish felt a little anonymous compared to some of its peers. Drink over the next couple of years. (NM)
