Tasting Notes

WA96

The 1999 Clos de la Roche Vieille Vignes is one of Laurent’s best wines from this hallowed vineyard. It has a generous bouquet that, as I commented before, does not mess about, almost hugging the olfactory senses and begging to be loved. It swarms with cranberry and raspberry scents, and continues to emit something almost Tuscan, but here with a little more mineralite. The palate is medium-bodied, sweet and round, lithe in the mouth with very wonderful persistency. Rubenesque! Tasted November 2013.

The Winery

Domaine Ponsot

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 the vines that need it. The family’s long tradition of letting nature take the lead has produced vineyards that are in exceptional condition to this day.
