Domaine Ponsot, Clos De La Roche Grand Cru, Cuvée Vieilles Vignes 2012 - 0,75L
The Clos de la Roche (which is not a clos, by the way), is a 16-hectare cru in Morey-Saint-Denis. It is one of the largest of the appellation. The cuvée vieilles vignes was created as a tribute to William Ponsot, founder of the Domaine in 1872.
It is an intense and concentrated wine with great finesse. The nose reveals notes of black fruits, violet and spices. The tannins are perfectly melted and the finish is long.
Great potential of evolution for this superb wine.
