The 1998 vintage is just one of these years … almost forgotten due to the hyped 1999s. The Domaine Ponsot Clos de la Roche 1998 is however a wine that both demands and deserves your attention. The nose is offering red and dark fruits, hint of sous-bois – all brought forward by a deep earthy minerality – classic Clos de la Roche. On the palate long, quite weighty with a lovely transparency and focus for the vintage. Impressive midpalate depth. A very fine Clos de la Roche in the making.
Subject to final confirmation. ETA 4 weeks.
