Domaine Ponsot is one of the top names to follow, attributed to the great work from Laurent Ponsot and has always been one of our favourites in Burgundy. Laurent Ponsot has led the domaine to keep producing brilliant wines from village to Grand Cru, and have developed a remarkably unique style that clearly differentiates itself from other top producers in Gevrey-Chambertin. Their wines are usually built for aging and start to shine after 10 years of bottle maturation. Having tried a few vintages from the top line Clos de la Roche down to the smaller-scale production Chapelle-Chambertin, we are never hesitant to keep buying and drinking their bottles.
Recently we have gained access to a large parcel of Chapelle-Chambertin from Domaine Ponsot and have picked Vintage 2004 to offer. From a "weaker" vintage which many drinkers may tend to ignore, there are many examples justifying that Burgundy reds from Vintage 2004 are showing well now - perfumed, friendly and charming; and when it comes to a producer like Laurent Ponsot who maintains his standards consistently and at a price of only HK$1,500 per bottle (half the price of vintages such as 2005, 2010 and 2015!), this is hard to refuse! -

92pts Stephen Tanzer Good full red. Very reserved nose hints at wild cherry, minerals, mocha and game. Fat, dense and silky; classically dry but with superb breadth. Less expressive than the Griottes but very pure and long, finishing with a building whiplash of flavor and compelling lingering perfume. This calls for a good seven or eight years of patience.
Subject to final confirmation. Available in 2-3 weeks.
In addition, we have the following from Ponsot in stock to offer, immediately available -
