Description
 
Laurent Ponsot has been described by some wine critics as a maverick due to his tendency to harvest as late as possible in order to obtain the maximum ripeness of fruit. Since 1999, Laurent has been on a mission to further augment the quality of his wines, and those that have tasted each vintage since then will confirm the noticeable quantum leap in the quality, complexity, and balance in his wines. Domaine Ponsot, situated at the top of the hill overlooking the village of Morey Saint Denis, has the largest parcel of Clos de la Roche grand cru where most of his vines are fifty plus years old. He also produces miniscule quantities of the outstanding Clos Saint Denis from vines of more than 100 years old.

Once again reduction renders the nose impossible to fairly assess. There is however a fine sense of energy and really lovely delineation to the lightly mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that possess very solid mid-palate concentration and a high level of phenolic maturity to the supporting tannins, all wrapped in a balanced and admirably lingering finish. This almost always delivers excellent value and quality and the 2012 version should be no exception. AM90-92
