On a visit to Burgundy in 2104, the owner of the hotel, where I was staying, recommended visiting Sarrazin, telling me, this was a producer, who was very popular within the local market and local gastronomy.
At this time I was probably very snobbish when it came to Burgundy, drinking very little that was not 1er or Grand cru. Sarrazin alongside Jacqueson in Rully was quite a revelation. The whites were mineral driven, had real grip and tension and costed between 10 and 20 Euros.
Since then I have always bought this producer for private consumation. Now the 2018s have arrived.
The Grognots again is a mineral driven wine, but there is more tension and precision than before. A french sommelier friend said on tasting, a petit meursault. This might be a bit over enthusiastic. However before paying for an over priced Bourgogne Blanc or even a village from Côte de Beaune producers I now would prefer a Givry from Sarrazin or a Rully from Jacqueson. At the moment this wine is embryonic but with two or three years ageing this wine will prove to be a real steal,
