Champ Canet lies at the north of the appellation, bordering Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières, just uphill from Puligny 1er Cru Les Combettes. With 1.1 hectares of vines here, this is Sauzet’s largest First Growth holding, the vines now averaging 60 years of age. It has been ageing in less than 30% new oak barrels. This is golden-green of medium depth, aromas being restrained, when tasted in October 2020, with suggestions of ginger and white pepper. Palate is broad and concentrated, showing powerful character, with spicy, long-lasting aftertaste (for drinking 2022-2028+).
