Goedhuis, November 2019
A beautiful and very striking style, with lots of cassis and liquorice on the nose. The bright, fresh minerality and purity sit comfortably with the depth and fullness of ripe succulent fruit. One of the standout wines in the line-up on the day of our barrel tasting. This is a wine of huge class. Drink 2023 -2041.
Wine Advocate, June 2020,
The 2018 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has turned out beautifully, unwinding to reveal aromas of cherries, cassis and dark berries, mingled with hints of black truffle, dark chocolate and forest floor. Full-bodied, muscular and concentrated, with ample reserves of ripe, powdery tannins, lively acids and a long, sapid finish. Like all of the domaine's 2018s, this will require some patience, but it's very promising.
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.
One of the nine Grand Crus vineyards within the Gevrey Chambertin area. Chapelle-Chambertin's vineyards are on gentle slopes, sheltered from the elements by woods to the north. The thin rocky soil forces the vines to work hard. The exceptional wines produced in Chapelle-Chambertin are complex, powerful and incredibly long-lasting.
