“The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Clos des Monts Luisants Blanc bursts from the glass with aromas of crisp green orchard fruit, waxy citrus rind, orange oil and warm pastry. Medium to full-bodied, fine-boned and elegant, it’s chalky and incisive, with fine concentration and cut, concluding with a precise, mineral finish.”

“Hail struck in July, damaging the canopy and impeding ripening, so the 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Clos des Monts Luisants Blanc was the last of Ponsot’s whites to be harvested. This year, the domaine opted to press intact clusters instead of crushing the berries before pressing as had been the practice under Laurent Ponsot. The resulting wine is superb, offering up notes of white currant, drawn butter, crisp green apples, chamomile and honeycomb. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, satiny and chiseled with lovely tangy acids, structuring dry extract and a long, saline finish.”

“A fresh, spicy and exuberant nose features notes of mostly white-fleshed fruit and citrus nuances where the latter also suffuse the punchy, precise and stony middle weight flavors that possess fine length on the very crisp and bone dry finale. At least some patience advised.”

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.
