Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, November 2019

    Plenty of excitement and energy, with enticing alpine berry fruits. A graceful and harmonious wine with a pleasing texture thanks to svelte tannins. Beautifully composed, fresh strawberry fruit flavours flow through the wine. Long and deliciously appealing.

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2020,
    Score: 87-90

    A more restrained but equally pretty nose reflects notes of red cherry, raspberry, rose petal, lavender and yes, a hint of violet. The succulent, fleshy and round flavors possess slightly riper tannins though there is still a bit of dryness on the firmer finish. This may well successfully age out as the dryness doesn't appear to affect the persistence. Drink: 2028+

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.

Region

Chambolle-Musigny

The wines of Chambolle Musigny are like no other. They can be superbly delicate, yet mindblowingly complex. Of all the northern Burgundy appellations, they are the most ethereal, and as a result the most feminine. Most of the Chambolle Musigny vineyard area is encompassed in its Village and Premier Cru appellations including the robust Beaux Bruns, the splendidly mineral Le Cras and the poised yet powerful Les Amoureuses. It produces only two Grand Crus - the round and rich Bonnes Mares which it shares with Morey St. Dénis, as well as what could be described as the Stradivarius of grand crus, Musigny.
