    Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Cuvee de l’Aulne‘ - Pinot Noir LP


    In February 2017, after 36 years at the helm of Domaine Ponsot, Laurent Ponsot left his celebrated Morey-St-Denis Estate to launch an eponymous operation with his son Clément. This was obviously a great surprise to many, if not all, Burgundy lovers, including us. Yet behind the scenes, the family had been managing Ponsot’s impending departure for some time, giving this iconoclast a buffer to set up his new venture. The reasons behind the departure remain private and, considering the complexity of untying and splitting the family’s vineyard holdings and external contracts, admirably discreet. Laurent remains a 25% silent shareholder in Domaine Ponsot, although he will be focussing exclusively on “Laurent Ponsot”. So a new icon is shaping up. The new operation, an all-in-one vineyard owner, sharecropper and négociant, is based in Gilly-lès-Cîteaux, close to the Clos de Vougeot. It’s a distinctly family affair: joining Ponsot and Clément are Ponsot’s other two children Claire and Nicolas—and importantly, Ponsot can also count on his experienced vigneron/chef de cave Arnaud Rouellat, a veteran of 20 years with Domaine Ponsot.


    OVERIGE (17)

    Great purity and focus to the raspberry fruit, with floury tannic feel and loads of liquorice and dark chocolate. Has the severity of Gevrey, but the generosity of fruit keeps it very moreish, and the finish has a charming spiciness. Layered and lengthy. (RH)
