An admirably cool yet ripe nose offers up notes of white peach, honeysuckle, wet stone and soft spice nuance. The impressively-scaled, rich, full-bodied and palate staining broad-shouldered flavors brim with dry extract that does an excellent job of buffering the very firm acid spine shaping the wonderfully complex and lingering finish. This beauty is perhaps a bit more muscular than usual for a classic Combettes but the natural finesse is still present. Excellent.
At this point in our tasting, Émile Boudot has been delivering a masterful tour of the various premier cru terroirs of Puligny and it had been a progressions of beautiful wine after beautiful wine for more than an hour, but he had clearly saved the best premier cru for last! The 2017 Domaine Sauzet Combettes is a brilliant wine in the making, offering up an utterly classic bouquet of apple, white peach, kaleidoscopic minerality, lemon zest, vanillin oak and a tropical orchard full of citrus fruit blossoms in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, fullbodied and very pure on the attack, with a great core of fruit, superb purity and bounce, racy acids and a very, very long, complex and absolutely electric finish. This has the backend lift and grip that only the very best white wines of 2017 share. 2024-2060.
Bright, light yellow. More complex and soil-driven on the nose than the Champ-Canet, hinting at stone fruits, iodiney minerality and hazelnut. Lovely plush, seamless wine with a sexy sweetness to its flavors of peach, flowers and minerals. There's an element of creaminess here that's nicely supported by harmonious acidity and minerality. Finishes with subtly, building spicy length and very good grip. (ST)
