Etiene Sauzet Bourgogne Haut Côte de Beaune Jardin du Calvaire (2020)
In keeping with Etienne’s signature winemaking style, the Hautes Côtes de Beaune Blanc ‘Jardin du Calvaire’ has a very precise, fresh nose with notes of citrus, white flowers and delicate mineral undertones. On the palate, there are notes of white pepper, vanilla and herbs. It has a lively acidity with a long saline finish.
This has a lovely, lemony fruit with a salty mineral edge, even in a hot year like 2020. A bit more tension, a bit less fat, but very pretty all the same. Just what one wants in a wine like this. This is remarkably good at this level and there’s a good bit of it: Sauzet farms 4.8ha in the Hautes-Côtes in the village of Cormont-le-Grand which he calls Jardin du Calvaire. He is next to Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, who labels it with the name of the valley, called locally ‘Bout du Monde’ (end of the world). Drinking Window 2023 – 2035
