Domaine Ponsot : Clos Vougeot Grand cru "Vieilles Vignes" 2017
Wine Advocate-Parker :
From one parcel in the lieu-dit Petit Maupertuis and another located below the Château de Latour, the 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru offers up a brooding bouquet of smoky berries, incense, dark chocolate and rich soil tones. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and layered with a fleshy core of fruit, rich structuring tannins and a quintessentially blocky profile that's built for the long haul. Abel notes that after the 2016 frosts, the vineyard team made special efforts to control yields in the Clos Vougeot.
