Griotte Chambertin Domaine Ponsot 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"Ponsot’s 2005 Griottes-Chambertin displays a wonderful depth and clarity of fruit and tactile pungency of spice, with black and red cherry seasoned by nutmeg, cinnamon, and cardamom. This finishes with exuberance and a sheer juiciness that is not the forte of most of Ponsot’s wines. Chalky minerality and bouillon-like meaty richness also emerge in the end...92-94" WA 04/07 "An exuberantly spicy and ripe nose of red and black cherries nuanced by hints of smoke, anise and crushed herb merges seamlessly into classy, seductive and opulently textured flavors that are borderline thick as there is so much dry extract and sap on the sweet and palate staining finish...94." BH 1/08.

Domaine Ponsot:
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'.
