2018 Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru Clos des Monts Luisants, Domaine Ponsot

The Monts-Luisants is the only Premier Cru Bourgogne Aligoté in Burgundy, and this is a stunning expression in 2018. There’s apple fruit and plenty of spice, and then a really complex and focussed finish.

TASTING NOTES

The 2018 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Clos des Monts Luisants Blanc has turned out very well, the Aligoté grape and this high-altitude site evidently making for a fine marriage with the balmy vintage. Exhibiting aromas of green apple, citrus rind and candle wax, it's medium to full-bodied, textural but incisive, with a racy spine of acid and chalky back-end grip.
