Tasting 2007 Ponsots

Pin It

Altaya Wines organized a tasting of 2007 Ponsot wines at the Press Room.  Laurent Ponsot was in town, and it was good to see him again a few weeks after our visit to his domaine.

2007 Ponsot Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Clos de Mont Luisants Blanc - nose of minerals and lemon. Quite pleasant to drink. This was labeled Vieilles Vignes as the vines were almost 100 years old...

2007 Ponsot Bourgogne Cuvée de Pinson - smoky, farmy, stinky with animal notes.

2007 Ponsot Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes - farmy, minty, some fruit on the nose. Sweeter on the palate.

2007 Ponsot Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Cuvée des Alouettes - smoky with forest notes. Very pleasant.

2007 Ponsot Chapelle-Chambertin - minty, smoky, fruity, earthy with minerals.

2007 Ponsot Griotte-Chambertin - more farmy with bacon fat, sweet, minty with herbs. Very lovely.

2007 Ponsot Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes - a lovely and complex wine. Perhaps not quite ready to be drunk tonight.

A very good range of wines, and I look forward to seeing Laurent again soon.
