2009 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru, Domaine Ponsot

The Griotte-Chambertin displays a fabulously seductive and rich, juicy mouthfeel, with ripe black fruit, some clove and pain d'épices and a discreet yet tight structure. The acidity provides spine and the finish on this stunning wine is very long. This rich Grand Cru has to be one of the best examples of top 2009 Burgundy.

2009 Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru, 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.
