Tasting Notes

    Neal Martin, December 2013,
    Score: 90-92

    The 2012 Corton Cuvee du Bourdon (or as I like to call it, the “bumblebee blend”) is a blend of the Corton and Corton Bressandes that were combined this year due to depleted quantities. It has a refined, composed bouquet with delineated black fruit, briary and limestone scents that unfold in the glass. The palate is introspective and quite tannic at first, but balanced with tertiary black fruit that build towards a more expressive, more floral finish. This should be afforded 3-4 years in bottle once released.

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

Corton

The Grands Crus of Corton, a red made from Pinot Noir, and Corton Charlemagne, a white made from Chardonnay are shared between Aloxe-Corton, Ladoix Serrigny and Pernand Vergelesses. The vines for both are planted on the hillsides underneath the plateau of Corton's woodland forest. The majorityof Pinot Noir is planted in the southern and eastern sector where the soil is naturally rich with red iron clay giving additional body and power. Overall, the wines from these areas tend to be fruit forward and fleshy with a balance of round edges and fine concentration.
