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. 50 centimetres of deep, red clay soil over fractured mother rock encourage vine roots to go down deep. The wine has been ageing in less than 30% new oak barrels. Colour is medium deep lemon-gold, aromas being rich, open and perfumed. Palate is full-bodied, with elegant texture and a spicy, rich and long finish (for drinking 2023-2029+).
