2018 Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Cuvée des Alouettes, Domaine Ponsot

From the vineyard that sits between Clos de la Roche and the Aligoté of Monts Luisants, this has real power and plenty of mineral grip. Spicy, and finely balanced, this is very long and focussed.

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of cherries and cassis mingling with hints of orange rind, spices and peonies introduce the 2018 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Cuvée des Alouettes, a medium to full-bodied, concentrated and lively wine that's deep and structured, with an ample core of fruit and plenty of powdery tannin. Nicely balanced in the broader-shouldered register of the vintage at this address, this will blossom with bottle age.
