Domaine Ponsot - Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru 'Clos des Monts Luisants' Vieilles Vignes 2018


Domaine Ponsot’s history begins in 1872 when William Ponsot purchased a wine estate in Morey-Saint-Denis and set up his home there. His major parcels of land at that time were the Clos des Monts-Luisants and Clos de la Roche. His nephew and godson, Hippolyte Ponsot, took over the domaine in 1920, and in 1932 started bottling his entire harvest at the domaine, a rarity for the time. Eventually the estate was passed down to Hippolyte’s son Jean-Marie, and later to Jean-Marie’s children, Laurent and Rose-Marie. Today, Rose-Marie Ponsot is the sole director of the company, seconded by Alexandre Abel. Unfettered by the latest fashions, Domaine Ponsot has always sought to express the richness of Burgundy terroir through natural cultivation practices. Human intervention is limited and only applied to the help that the vine needs. The family’s long tradition of letting nature take the lead work that today the vineyards are in exceptional condition.

"With renewed interest in the grape thanks to the group of producers known as Les Aligoteurs, this famous, mostly old-vine parcel of Aligoté is enjoying more of the limelight than ever. Cool, breezy and very mineral, with chiselled acidity, notes of lemon zest and green herbs, subtle oaking and a long, sappy, mouthwatering finish." - Decanter
