Domaine Ponsot : Morey-Saint-Denis 1er cru "Cuvée des Alouettes" 2007
Wine Advocate-Parker :
When you drink the 2005, he continues, you think: '2005.' When you drink this 2007, you think: 'Chambolle Charmes.' The Ponsot 2007 Morey-St.-Denis 1er Cru Cuvee des Alouettes generates dark berry fruit and soy like savor strikingly distinct from the character of its Chambolle siblings. Teak, wood ear mushroom, and smoky animal fat notes lend fascination to the nose and a glycerin-rich, slick, yet persistently sappy palate. There is an invigoratingly tart edge to this that you might anticipate from 2008, but certainly not 2007. Expect it to intrigue your imagination; invigorate your palate; and milk your salivary glands for at least the next 10-12 years.
