About the Wine
93-96 points, Jasper Morris
“Fresh bright purple, the bouquet is quite discreet, then a wealth of fruit hits the front of the palate, but does not rise to the heights of nobility of Laurent’s greatest wines. Quite a firm finish. There is more structure here than shown by the Clos de Bèze.”
About The Winery
After 36 years at Domaine Ponsot, Laurent Ponsot left the family domaine in February of 2017 to pursue a new wine adventure. He is joined in this new endeavor by his son, Clément, whose excitement for winemaking is as strong as his own, while his other two children, Claire and Nicolas, also hold shares in the company. Embodying his pioneering spirit, the company is named after Laurent himself who values humility, respects nature, and enjoys above all else the great pleasure of winemaking. Laurent's resolute quest for an alliance between history and innovation continues, and he will retain all of the fruits of his past research, such as the perfect closure, élevage without sulfur but under neutral gas, temperature-controlled 'intelligent cases', and the protection of authenticity. Through these innovations, his goal, as always, will be to provide consummate, authentic examples of great Burgundy wines.
