This cuvee is great example of what the Domaine can produce. Rich yet velvety, tannins bring a powerful and solid structure. 2007 is starting to show more complexity with delicate aromas of red fruits, hint of forest floor and nice earthy and mineral notes.
French still red wine from Cote de Nuits in Burgundy’s Cote d’Or (Bourgogne) France, made with Pinot Noir.
Domaine Ponsot was founded by William Ponsot in 1872, when he settled in Morey St Denis returning from the Franco-Prussian war. His successors were some of the first to understand the importance of estate bottling and clonal selection. Today Rose-Marie Ponsot is the sole director of the company. The Ponsots ‘love wine because it is alive’ and follow a ‘non interventionist’ philosophy in order to avoid the standardisation of their wines. They apply biodynamic practices in the vineyard, and age their wines in oak barrels which are at least 10 years old. Their Burgundy do require time to be appreciated but when they reach maturity, they are powerful yet elegant wine with great complexity. View our selection.
