2018 Morey-St-Denis Cuvée des Grives, Domaine Ponsot

From the village part of the Monts Luisants vineyard, this is juicy and vibrant with very wild fruit and loads of definition. This might be village level, but it tastes premier cru.

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of dark berries, baking chocolate, rose hips and warm spices introduce the 2018 Morey-Saint-Denis Cuvée des Grives, a medium to full-bodied wine that's ripe and chewy, with structure to burn and tangy underlying acidity. This should round out nicely with further bottle age, but it's clearly quite a bit more muscular than its 2017 counterpart.
