About the Wine
96-99 points, Jasper Morris
“This has a beautiful bright purple colour. The fruit is exceptionally classy, which is why it deserves its place in the line-up, after the Clos de Bèze and Chambertin. Marvellous precision, almost a saline note in with the concentrated fresh red fruit, superb. Might this be the finest wine in the cellar this year? The answer in fact is no, because the Clos St-Denis is still to come.”
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.
