Domaine Ponsot Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

97-99 points Fine Wine Review: The Clos de la Roche is one of the greatest that I've had the privilege to taste here. Complexity, precision, balance, and intensity are all here -- it just takes patience to let the wine age. (Issue #134; 2011) 95-97 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): ...There is superb size and weight to the imposing and overtly muscular flavors that also enjoy an incredible amount of dry extract that confers a supple and seductively textured mouth feel to the highly concentrated mid-palate. The presently buried tannins are intense and markedly firm though not hard on the explosively long finish that seems to go on and on... Don't miss! Drink: 2032+. (Jan 2012)

Domaine Ponsot wines are traditional wines and our production methods stay away from modern trends. This is a conscious choice we have made, rather than something that stems from an occult belief in what is known today as 'non-interventionism'.
