About the Wine
93-95 points, Jasper Morris
“Bright pink purple with a bouquet that could suggest whole bunches, only there are none. This is one of the floral, lacily detailed examples of Echezeaux followed by a little earthiness at the back, with grainy tannins. Still working itself out but I think this will be exciting.”
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.
