Tasting Notes

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2019,
    Score: 88-90

    This is aromatically pretty and quite fresh with its lightly spicy combination of red berries, floral and earth-scented nose. Here too there is a relatively sleek and refined mouthfeel to the slightly more concentrated and more mineral-inflected flavors that possess good detail though the moderately dry and clipped bitter cherry pit-inflected finish comes up distinctly short. This is pretty enough but the balance leaves much to be desired and it's not evident that this is going to harmonize. This is normally an excellent wine but it didn't show well today. Drink 2027+

  • JR

    Jancis Robinson, February 2020,
    Score: 17+

    Less impactful than their Chambertin Cuvée du Chêne on the nose, but the palate has superb clarity of fruit with a meaty complexity on the finish. All in all, it doesn’t quite soar as high as you might expect. More time needed? (RH) 13%. Drink 2020 – 2032

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.

Chambertin-Clos de Bèze

Gevrey-Chambertin has more Grand Crus than any other appellation in Burgundy. Unusually wines from Clos de Beze may simply call themselves Chambertin, which is an indicator of the quality of these vineyards. One of the most complete of all the Grand Crus, rivalling the revered Romanee-Conti, Chambertin-Clos de Bèze wines are the pinnacle of Pinot Noir - fragrant, powerfully complex and intense.
