Clos de la Roche Cuvee Vieille Vignes 2013 Domaine Ponsot
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2013 Clos de la Roche Cuvée Vieilles Vignes, from vines planted in 1905, has an inviting, delineated bouquet with vibrant wild strawberry, raspberry preserve and mineral notes. The palate has great tension – so suave and poised with superb symmetry and an effortless finish that I don’t think the Clos Saint Denis has at the moment. Laurent Ponsot did not disguise his enthusiasm for this Grand Cru and I could understand why.
Majestic dark crimson. Very rich and layered and alluring on the nose. Very sumptuous indeed. Intense minerally possibly liquorice scents. Great balance with massive fruit but also real freshness and even some delicacy. Not just the powerhouse of Chambertin but something more subtle. Very alluring indeed.
