Critic Reviews
94 points, Burghound
“A ripe yet exceptionally fresh nose is comprised by both red and dark berries another with plenty of earth influence. I very much like the texture of the detailed medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent depth on the very firmly structured, youthfully austere and powerful finish where the only reproach is noticeable warmth.”

94 points, Jasper Morris
“Lively deep purple in colour, with a rather reductive nose. The palate reflects good acidity again with the crunchy factor of the best 2020s. This would be very fine without the reduction. Also, a pleasing saline touch at the finish. I would expect the reduction to dissipate, and have scored accordingly. 14.5%. Drink from 2030-2040. Tasted: November 2022.”

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.
