Goedhuis exclusive releases | Laurent Ponsot 2017
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 UK agent last year.
Laurent continues 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 Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes, which he has been making since 1982. 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. Laurent and Clément have also added a superb set of Meursaults to the range which are notable for their drive and minerality.
Laurent’s philosophy remains unchanged, and he continues to make wines of exceptional purity and balance, without the use of any new oak.
