Burghound, April 2008,
An equally elegant if rather different nose features a beautiful mélange of red berries and plum notes that also blend in nuances of earth and stone that are also reflected on the detailed and punchy medium weight plus flavors that are layered, pure and classy as the supporting tannins are really quite sophisticated. The personalities of the Taillepieds and Pézerolles are really quite similar in the sense of both being refined and high energy wines.Drink: 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.
Côte de Nuits-Villages
This communal appellation covers the vineyards of Fixin, Brochon, Premeaux, Comblanchien, and Corgoloin. Spread along the length of the Cotes de Nuits the wines of the different communes are, unsurprisingly, varied, reflecting a range of different exposures and nuances of soild type. The vast majority of production is red, with just a smattering of Chardonnay grown. The reds can offer very good value from the better producers.
