"Outstanding! An exceptionally fresh and airy nose offers up notes of lemon-lime, pear, acacia blossom and wet stone where the latter element is also reflected by the beautifully well-delineated, intense and mouth coating middle weight flavors that culminate in a balanced and even racy finish. I very much like the underlying sense of tension that is present on the backend." (Feb 2011)
"Pale yellow-straw. Aromas of lemon, spices, menthol, flowers and stone. Dry and penetrating in the mouth, with citrus fruit flavors and a strong suggestion of liquid minerality. Not especially rich, but showing more stony cut than it did from barrel a year ago. Wait two or three years and then serve this with a grilled or poached sole, Boudot suggests." (Sep 2011)

"The 2009 Puligny-Montrachet La Garenne emerges from the glass with beautifully delineated layers of fruit. It is a precise, finely cut Puligny laced with exquisite aromatics and finely chiseled fruit. A persistent vein of minerality frames the delicate, understated finish. This is a classy effort from Sauzet. Gerard Boudot describes the terrain here as quite poor. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019." (Sep 2011)
