Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2011

    Not many wines take up a full page of notes in my tasting book, but this certainly did, so here is the abbreviated version! Strong, deep, chocolate-coated fruit aromas. This is a sensational wine, full of succulence and beautiful lusciousness. It has an extraordinary balance between harmony and weight with an incredible weight of fruit. Impossible to fault this wine, the lovely juicy flavours are supported by a fine freshness of fruit. Sensational.

    Score: 95-97

    (the aggregate size of this holding is a whopping 3.4 ha and Ponsot is easily the largest holder in Clos de la Roche). In stark contrast to the expressiveness of the Clos St. Denis, this is almost mute and even aggressive swirling liberates only the briefest glimpses of wild red berries and earth notes. There is superb size and weight to the imposing and overtly muscular flavors that also enjoy an incredible amount of dry extract that confers a supple and seductively textured mouth feel to the highly concentrated mid-palate. The presently buried tannins are intense and markedly firm though not hard on the explosively long finish that seems to go on and on. This should be something very special if given sufficient time to reach its apogee. 2032+

    Score: 18.5

    Dark crimson with a hit of blue. The sort of wine that makes you purr with contentment. So much interesting fruit in here but a savoury side to it too. Still very young but with boundless energy, bitter plum sweetness on the finish. Very fine. Drink 2020-2040

Producer

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.

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.
