Tasting Notes

  • BURG1

    Burghound, January 2001,
    Score: 91

    Exquisitely complex yet rather reserved fruit with medium weight, very earthy flavors of good depth and superior length. There is plenty of structure here and excellent balance overall. This doesn't quite have the density and sappy extract of the Clos St.-Denis but it should make a lovely wine in 8 to 10 years. Drink: 2006-2008.Notes: bottled in September.

    Burghound, April 2004,
    Score: 91/100

    Exquisitely complex yet rather reserved fruit with medium weight, very earthy flavors of excellent depth and outstanding length. There is plenty of structure here and superb balance overall and I very much like the overall combination of density, purity, elegance and impressive length. While this is certainly approachable now with food, it will be best with another 3 to 5 years of cellar time, perhaps a bit longer.

    Score: 13.5/20

    Fullish colour. Once again a curious nose onthis Ponsot wine. More old tea than freshfruit. Better on the palate. Here there is amixture of the two. On the finish it is thefruit that is dominant. But how is this goingto evolve? Slightly astringent already.

Domaine Ponsot

Domaine Ponsot is an atypical but outstanding domaine in Morey St Denis. Their combination of late picking, destemming, and ageing in old oak barrels achieve the domaine’s distinctive style of long-lived wines. Laurent Ponsot left the domaine in 2017, and the estate is now run by his sister, Rose Marie Ponsot. Alexandre Abel has joined the team as régisseur, and together they continue to uphold these three principles of the estate. Furthermore, they are not afraid to experiment, and are always evolving the viticulture and winemaking style with small innovations. The estate has eschewed the fashion of using new oak barrels to age the wines, preferring seasoned casks which act as an “elevage” vessel rather than imparting barrel flavours. As Alexandre says “we want our wines to taste the maximum of the true fruit and terroir flavours that nature provides us with".

Region

Clos de la Roche

The finest and biggest Grand Cru red wine appellation in Burgundy's Morey-St-Denis, on the Côte deNuits, covering 16.9ha. Clos de la Roche's soils are rich in marl which gives more body, depth and ageing potential to its wines than most other vineyards. Wines from Clos de la Roche tend to be powerful and full bodied with black fruit aromas and flavours, developing rich, gamey characters with age.
