Description

2015 Etienne Sauzet Montrachet Grand Cru

A restrained but highly complex nose features notes of ripe, pure and elegant honeysuckle, pear, apple and soft spice aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is excellent concentration to the equally refined and relatively powerful medium-weight flavors that possess a highly seductive mouth feel before culminating in a saline and gorgeously persistent finish. Excellent upside development potential.

Critical Acclaim

94 Vinous

Bright, light yellow. The discreet nose offers scents of flowers and iodine minerality; not at all exotic for Montrachet from a warm, sunny year. Then super ripe and rich on the palate, conveying an almost oily concentration to its flavors of ripe apricot and mandarin orange enlivened by brisk citrus notes. With two grams per liter of residual sugar, this wonderfully smooth, seamless wine comes across as deceptively easygoing. There's nothing austere about this beauty, which finishes with a slowly mounting length.

93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2015 Montrachet Grand Cru, which comes from purchased fruit from the Chassagne side, was taken from barrel since it underwent a very slow malolactic fermentation according to winemaker Benîot Riffault. To be honest, it has a hard time following the Chevalier Montrachet, not nearly as expressive and without the mineralité shown by the vines located further up in the incline. The palate is actually more expressive with very fine tension, quite intense with palpable salinity, with a sense of energy. There is genuine weight and presence on the finish here and the aftertaste is very long, yet the action seems to reside with the Chevalier-Montrachet this season.

Driving down Ventura Blvd in Studio City in the 1960’s has something in common with today, Flask Fine Wine & Whisky- Flask first opened its doors to the public in 1962. Decades later and it still remains a respected fixture in the Los Angeles community. 

We work directly with the wineries, distilleries and breweries to maintain a personal relationship with the creators of some of our favorite products.

We want to know their stories and how they produce bottles that fit into our unique collection. We make a point to keep our selection stocked with a wide variety, offering your classic Napa icons to your natural & organic wines.

We like to think of our whiskey and spirit section as more of a library where the rarest of bottles can be found.

We look forward to helping you find your next favorite bottle!
