2001 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Ponsot
Domaine Ponsot

Domaine Ponsot’s cellar sits atop the hill overlooking the vineyards of Morey St Denis, with views stretching the length of the Côte de Nuits. They are one of the, if not the, defining domaines of the village, and the largest landowners in the hallowed terroir of Clos de la Roche Grand Cru. The estate has been in the Ponsot family since 1872. Laurent Ponsot brought the estate to fame, with his flare for producing distinctive wines that broke the mould. His departure in 2017 saw the domaine transferred to the safe hands of his sister, Rose-Marie, whose appointment of régisseur Alexandre Abel has ensured the domaine’s signature style of late picking, destemming, and exclusion of new oak during élevage continued seamlessly. These are intense, concentrated, and fabulously long-lived wines, keenly sought-out by the domaine’s many loyal followers.
