2018 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Ponsot

⅓ comes from the Petits Maupertuis, next to Grands Echezeaux, and the rest from near Grivot. Good length and volume. Plenty of richness and power. This is quite intense, but has a layer of elegance, which keeps it fresh and focussed.

TASTING NOTES

The 2018 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is showing well, bursting with aromas of cassis, plums, forest floor and spices. Full-bodied, firm and muscular, with lively underpinning acids, this is a chewy, broad-shouldered wine that's promising, but it will require patience. This derives from one parcel in the lieu-dit Petit Maupertuis and another located below the Château de Latour.
