    The 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from two parcels on the Aloxe-Corton side of the hill, one facing south and the other more to the east. It has a well-defined bouquet, understated at first, offering lime flower, orange blossom and touches of linseed oil. The palate is well balanced with fine delineation, and quite saline with a tang of ginger toward the taut, spicy finish. Excellent. 2021 - 2035

    Score: 94-96

    As good a rendition of this cuvée as I can remember tasting, the 2017 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru is superb, unfurling in the glass with aromas of beeswax, white flowers, crisp yellow orchard fruit and wet stones, with nuances of nutmeg and fresh apricot emerging as it sits in the glass. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with a concentrated core, succulent acids and a wonderful sense of energy and tension that balances its comparatively broad shoulders. It's produced from two parcels in Aloxe-Corton, one warmer and the other cooler.

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. The estate has eschewed the fashion of using new oak barrels to age the wines, preferring seasoned casks which act as an “elevage” vessel rather than imparting barrel flavours. As Alexandre says “we want our wines to taste the maximum of the true fruit and terroir flavours that nature provides us with".

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.
