  • Tasting note: Richly colored with intensely sweet cherry fruit, medium weight and fairly supple tannins supporting flavors that are trés pinot. The structure here is solid though not particularly dense and definitely not hard. This is good but for relative performance, the Charmes is better. Cellar for 5 to 7 years and

    Producer note: As is his usual practice, Laurent Ponsot was one of the very latest growers to pick, telling me that he didn't start until "September 7th. Nothing was normal this year but the '03s are absolutely fantastic. The hardest thing to do was not to get excessively jammy wines. Amazingly, one of my neighbors picked his Clos de la Roche on August 14th yet I didn't pick mine until September 14! His sugar readings were only 10.5% - I know because I asked. There was rain on August 31st and it saved us because it jump started the cycle of photosynthesis all over again and because of the small crop, we gained a lot of sugar quickly. By waiting the extra month, all of my wines came in between 13 and 14%, which is where they should be. Our yields however were abysmal as we realized fully two-thirds less than a normal crop, and I already crop low. I didn't chaptalize and I absolutely did not acidify. Besides, acidities went up during the fermentation as the dried berries released acidity into the musts. And I'm proud to say that I did the same amount of punching down as usual and I didn't alter the total cuvaison either. I also have not racked the wines at all but I will bottle them a good deal earlier than usual, which is to say January rather than July. Some wines are not reviewed, most notably the Clos St. Denis Vieilles Vignes because there was only one barrel and as Ponsot correctly notes, "what am I going to top up with if I keep offering samples?" (Vineyard Brands, Birmingham, AL and Atherton Wine Imports, Atherton, CA; Morris & Verdin, Goedhuis & Co., Ballantynes, Lay and Wheeler and Rare & Fine Wine Co., all UK).
    Tasting note: This is really quite pretty too but it can't match the depth and explosive quality of the Griotte. Still, there is good complexity on the high-toned red fruit nose cut with an almost pungently earthy character followed by a very fresh, intense and precise palate impression and fine length. In short, this is an exceptionally refined wine that will also require plenty of time.

Red Burgundy Ponsot 2004 Griotte Chambertin 1 Case 12 75cl £2,150
  •  Ponsot Griotte-Chambertin

    Good full red. Sappy, very showy aromas of red cherry, faded rose, meat, dried herbs and smoke. Fat, dense, broad and sweet, with expressive flavors of red cherry, spices and dried herbs. Very rich, long wine, finishing with a fine dusting of tannins and a lingering aromatic quality.

Red Burgundy Ponsot 2005 Chapelle Chambertin 2 Bottle 75cl £290
  • Chapelle-Chambertin

    Full, deep red. Superripe, distinctly high-toned aromas of dark cherry, mocha, tar, black tea and rooty licorice, with a pharmaceutical dusty quality and an emerging liqueur-like note of framboise Thick, sappy and extremely intense; a hugely rich wine that's like a boiled-down essence of pinot, and yet powerful acidity gives it tremendous energy in the mouth. Notes of black cardamom and botanical herbs give this hugely rich wine a distinctly medicinal character. I had the feeling I was awakening a very angry bear during the early weeks of its winter hibernation: yes, it was the wrong time!

Red Burgundy Ponsot 2005 Griotte Chambertin 1 Case 12 75cl £4,750
  •  Ponsot Griotte-Chambertin

    Good ruby-red. Sappy, liqueur-like aromas of griotte cherry and black raspberry. Wonderfully intense and concentrated, with a nearly confectionery sweetness to its explosive fruit flavors. Like the Cuvee des Alouettes, this comes across as a bit high-toned and will require careful attention during its final months of elevage But offers great potential.

Red Burgundy Ponsot 2005 Clos de la Roche Cuvee Vieilles Vignes 1 Case 6 75cl £5,500£4,800
  • Tasting note: All the superb and dramatic complexity that this displayed from barrel has made it into bottle as an extremely ripe and fantastically broad nose soars from the glass, merging seamlessly into dense, pure rich and powerful flavors that are opulent, sweet and dripping with so much extract and sap that the combination stains and saturates the palate on the hugely proportioned yet impeccably balanced finish that is so long that it doesn't seem possible. Given how many reference standard vintages Domaine Ponsot has produced of the Clos de la Roche over the years, it would be presumptuous to anoint this as the best ever but if it isn't, it will certainly take its rightful place among the very greatest. In sum, a 'wow' wine that makes you shake your head in sheer amazement. However be aware that this is a buy and forget wine as it will require at least 15 years to shed its considerable tannins and it will see 50 years without difficulty.

Red Burgundy Ponsot 2006 Chapelle Chambertin 3 Bottle 75cl £185
  • Chapelle-Chambertin

    Deep, saturated ruby-red. Superripe, slightly high-toned aromas of wild blackberry, black cherry and smoke. This, too, is a sweet, superripe fruit bomb, albeit in a rather powerful style and with a firm edge. Ponsot say it's the wine's tannins that give the impression of volatile acidity. Extremely rich for 2006: it will be interesting to follow this.

Red Burgundy Ponsot 2017 Clos de la Roche Cuvee Vieilles Vignes 1 Case 3 150cl £1,990
  • Tasting note: A spicy, cool and gorgeously complex nose reflects notes of both red and dark currant, earth and a whiff of leather. There is excellent richness to the concentrated and beautifully textured broad-shouldered flavors that possess focused power and a subtle minerality that really comes up on the youthfully austere and strikingly long finish. As good as the Chapelle is, there is just another dimension present here.
