Burghound, January 2002,
More complex than the Clos St. Denis and this too is intensely sappy and concentrated with gorgeously detailed flavors that offer knock out intensity. This builds slowly from the attack all the way to the explosive finish and lingers for minutes. This is equally impressive though with a very different character. This may ultimately surpass its stable mate but for now, the exquisite balance of the Clos St. Denis gives it a slight edge. Drink: 2010-2020.
Burghound, August 2008,
This has begun to shut down somewhat| particularly on the nose even with extended airing. However the mid-palate is intensely sappy and concentrated with gorgeously detailed flavors that offer knock out intensity| building slowly from the attack all the way to the explosive finish and lingers for minutes. As impressive as the wine is however| the structure has begun to assert itself and thus this will need another 6 to 10 or be at its best. Tasted twice recently with similar results. Drink: try 2014+.

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.
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.
