Exclusive Launch Offer | Laurent Ponsot 2016
After 30 years at the helm of Domaine Ponsot, in January 2017, Laurent Ponsot left this celebrated Morey St Denis estate to launch an eponymous operation with his son Clément in a new building in neighbouring Gilly-lès-Cîteaux. Goedhuis & Co is incredibly honoured to have been appointed his exclusive UK agent earlier this year.
Laurent will continue to make many of the famous Grands and Premiers Crus that he made in previous years with the Domaine label, such as Chambertin, Griotte Chambertin, Clos St Denis and Chambolle Charmes. He is also now producing some additional wines bottled under the new Laurent Ponsot label, which we are delighted to offer herewith. The whites are named after flowers, and the reds cuvées are named after trees.
In his recent review of the 2016 reds Allen Meadows - AKA Burghound - called the 2016 Bourgogne Rouge Cuvée de Peupliers 'a quality effort' and the 2016 Gevrey Chambertin Cuvée de L’Aulne 'outstanding'.
Laurent and Clément have also added a superb set of Meursaults to the range which are notable for their drive and minerality.
Demand for great Burgundy always outstrips supply. This is a unique opportunity to get involved in the first vintage of this new estate, run by one of the most famous names in the region.
