Critic Reviews
94-96 points, Wine Advocate
“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.”

91-93 points, Burghound
“A ripe and very fresh nose offers up notes of essence of Granny Smith apples, mineral reduction, spiced pear and plenty of floral elements. The surprisingly supple medium-bodied flavors are quite forward while offering good if not genuinely special depth and persistence on the dry but not austere finale.”

About The Winery
Vineyard Brands has a history spanning more than 40 years of buying wines from Domaine Ponsot - first from Hippolyte Ponsot, later from his son Jean-Marie, and most recently from Laurent and Rose-Marie. Domaine Ponsot's history begins in 1872 when William Ponsot purchased a wine estate in Morey-Saint-Denis and set up his home there. His major parcels of land at that time were the Clos des Monts-Luisants and Clos de la Roche. His nephew and godson, Hippolyte Ponsot, took over the domaine in 1920, and in 1932 started bottling his entire harvest at the domaine, a rarity for the time. Eventually the estate was passed down to Hippolyte's son Jean-Marie, and later to Jean-Marie's children, Laurent and Rose-Marie. Today, Rose-Marie Ponsot is the sole director of the company, seconded by Alexandre Abel. Unfettered by the latest fashions, Domaine Ponsot has always sought to express the richness of Burgundy terroir through natural cultivation practices. Human intervention is limited and only applied to the help that the vine needs. The family's long tradition of letting nature take the lead work that today the vineyards are in exceptional condition.
