"Don't miss!" Allen Meadows - 2015 Ponsot Clos de la Roche Magnums In Stock and More

June 5, 2018

Domaine Ponsot is currently one of the top names to follow in Burgundy, thanks to the great work from Laurent Ponsot, and it has always been one of our favorites. Sadly, Laurent Ponsot decided to leave his family domaine and his last production was the 2015 vintage. Among the wines produced by the domaine, the favorite is Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes in which they own 3.4 ha, making them the largest holder of the appellation. A combination of the top vintage and the top appellation wine from Ponsot, the 2015 Ponsot Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes is a legendary release from the domaine and definitely worthy for collection. 

 

We are happy to offer today a pristine case of 3 magnums available in loose and at a sharp price -

HK$9,500 per magnum, 3 magnums available in original wooden case

93-96 pts Allen Meadows “Don’t miss!”

An overtly floral-suffused nose, and in particular violet and lilac, adds a touch of elegance to the liqueur-like red cherry, plum and dark currant scents. The exceptionally rich and full-bodied flavors possess an outstanding level of dry extract that imparts a highly seductive texture to the mid-palate, indeed it's even caressing, yet the intensity and power really mount as this moves toward the almost painfully intense and explosive finale. Like its Clos St. Denis stable mate, this is superb and should effortlessly reward 20 years of cellaring and still be around 50 years from now.

 

96 pts Wine Advocate

The 2015 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Cuvée Vieilles Vignes, which was fermented with 25% whole cluster this year, offers up a deep and complex nose of plums, roasted venison, black cherries, fruit preserve, pencil lead, dark chocolate, licorice and a subtle framing of new wood. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, supple and multidimensional, with a deep core of ripe fruit, rich tannins and an intense, sapid finish. This is a classic expression of Ponsot's singular, late-picked style, and it should make for decadent, dramatic drinking after a decade or so in the cellar.
