Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, May 2018

    Laurent’s unique brand of winemaking, with 100% destemming and now new oak, allows the meaty, muscular structure of vineyards like Clos de Vougeot triumph. This is deeply scented with kirsch and Black Forest gateau aromas. The palate is driven by an abundance of firm, structural tannins giving the wine a statuesque power.

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2018,
    Score: 89-92

    A relatively elegant mix of upper and medium register aromas centers mostly on the dark berry side of the fruit spectrum along with hints of the sauvage, freshly turned earth and underbrush along with a hint of menthol. There is lovely detail and underlying tension to the moderately forward medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of punch on the dusty and youthfully austere finish. This is perfectly good but not really distinguished for the appellation. Drink 2026+

Producer

Laurent Ponsot

Laurent Ponsot is one of Burgundy’s most internationally renowned winemakers. In 2017 he formally left his family domaine in Morey St Denis, and struck out on his own with a new winemaking facility in Gilly-lès- Cîteaux from where he now runs his solo project, started in 2015, full-time. He had been instrumental in Domaine Ponsot’s rise to fame, and had built a reputation as a maverick winemaker with his unique style that combined late harvesting, destemming, and complete aversion to new oak in the cellar. His wines are concentrated and long lived, and have won him admirers the world over. He is a passionate campaigner and prominent activist in the fight against fake wine on the secondary market. Having left his family domaine in the hands of his sisters, Laurent is joined by his son, Clément, at his new project, and together they are continuing to make their hugely exciting wines. Much of the fruit comes from his share of the family vineyards that remained with him after his departure, whilst the new project has given him the opportunity to explore new appellations.
