Goedhuis, December 2012
Deep purple colour, this has flavours of strong dark berried cherries, with hints of coffee and spice. The intense and very structured fruit flavours are uplifted by the lively acidity. A big, broad wine which will benefit from ageing.
Burghound, January 2013,
(from a .90 ha parcel). A very pretty, even perfumed nose of spicy red cherry, raspberry and floralnuances introduces restrained, focused and well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that possess superb richness yet no lack of energy. There is first-rate purity and transparency to the highly complex, balanced and seriously long finish. This is terrific and should be excellent in time though note that moderate patience will be required as this is not forward. Drink 2023+
Jancis Robinson, January 2013,
The first wine to have just a hint of something possibly reduction related on the nose but with splendiferous fruit on the palate. Racy and pretty rich though very far from heavy. Drink 2019-2035
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.
Although the name Griotte-Chambertin comes from a word for a grill-pan inspired by the shape of the vineyard, locals and critics alike agree that there is an unmistakeable scent of cherries in this delectable wine. One of the nine Grand Cru vineyards to be found within Gevrey Chambertin, Griotte-Chambertins are wines of great power, complexity and longevity.
