Allen Meadows' Burghound - 2017 Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru, Etienne Sauzet
A slightly more elegant if more restrained array grudgingly reveals notes of honeysuckle, orange peel, lavender and a hint of pain grillé. The sleek, sophisticated and equally elegant medium weight flavors deliver very fine length on the saline-inflected finale that goes on and on. As the best examples often are, this is a lovely combination of power and finesse.

Vinous - 2017 Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru, Etienne Sauzet
(there are just two-and-a-half barrels of this juice, none of them new): Bright pale yellow. Rich, ripe peach aroma with a buttery nuance. Then dry and laid-back on the palate; in a rather powerful style but youthfully tight, showing no easy oaky sweetness. More minerally than the Combettes but displaying less stuffing and creaminess than that wine (I might have identified this wine blind as a Pucelles). This fairly large-scaled wine finishes with a peach pit cyanic dryness and very good length. - Stephen Tanzer, Sep. 2018
