Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2012,
    Score: 95-97

    Dense, almost opaque colour. A very scented spiced nose, this a fabulous Grand Cru, full of showy exuberant blackberry flavours. Rich and concentrated, with great layers of flavours. There is no doubting this vineyard’s standing when one tastes such a wine. This is something very special in the making. Quite simply stunning.

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2013,
    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). A discreet application of wood does not reduce the considerable appeal of the ripe, pure and airy nose with its broad mélange of wild red berry fruit liqueur, earth, spice, violets and a hint of animale. The broadshouldered flavors possess superb mid-palate concentration that enrobes the buried but still quite firm tannins while culminating in a beautifully balanced, muscular and explosively long finish. This is also very clearly built to age yet like the Clos St. Denis, there is so much sap that this could be drunk now with pleasure. A ‘wow’ wine. Drink 2026+

    Average 60-year-old vines. Where the Clos St-Denis is all concentration, this is all subtlety. Sweet and gentle yet with refreshment value. Reverberation and excitement. Well done. Maybe less dramatic but no less rewarding. Drink 2018-2040

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.
