A very innovative domaine which continuously develops innovations in bottling and packaging to maintain the conditions of their wines and protect themselves from counterfeit wines, Domaine Ponsot remains its traditional winemaking approach with minimalist intervertion to offer the truest expression of their vineyards. The use of old vines, "vieilles vignes", also give their wines the concentration and power needed to age magnificently.
With the quality and experience of the people behind this domaine, we are delighted to offer two excellently priced red and white Grand Crus and believe they are the most sensational buys of the week -
Ponsot Charmes-Chambertin Cuvée des Merles Grand Cru Rouge 2013
HK$1,500 per bottle
90-93pts Allen Meadows
Reduction flattens the nose to the point that it is unreadable. By contrast there is excellent freshness and intensity to the big-bodied flavors that possess robust tannins and impressive power on the punchy finish that is austere, serious and impressively long. There is an abundance of dry extract that coats the palate and while this is on the awkward side today the underlying material is so good that this should come together in time though I underscore that plenty of it will be necessary.
Ponsot Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru Blanc 2013
HK$1,560 per bottle
90-93pts Allen Meadows
This too exhibits exotic fruit aromas along with more typical notes of white peach, apple, floral and wet stone nuances. There is exceptionally good richness and power to the big-bodied and muscular flavors that possess ample minerality that adds lift to the mineral-driven, sappy and firmly structured finale. This impressively persistent effort will need at least 4 to 5 years of fully flesh out and completely harmonize.
Subject to final confirmation. ETA 4 weeks.
