Ponsot's 2018 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Cuvée Vieilles Vignes is a brooding, powerful wine, unfurling in the glass with a kaleidoscopic bouquet that marries deep fruit tones of dark berries and cassis with sweet nuances of smoked meats, licorice, dark chocolate and peonies. Full-bodied, broad-shouldered and muscular, it's deep and concentrated, with a layered core of fruit that's built around rich reserves of tannin and lively balancing acids. This appears to be the most structured Ponsot Clos de la Roche of the decade; it will demand patience, but it is a terrific wine in the making.
