Since 1872, the Domaine has been producing prestigious wines true to the terroir, climate and the vintage. Ponsot wines are made from 21 different appellations, of which 12 are Grand Cru comprising an astonishing 75% of their production. An important note is the entire Burgundy production of Grand Cru wines is only 1%.

To have a better understanding of the terrior and changes over the decades, we will feature the Ponsot Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes 1980, as to compare with the recent 2011 & 2013.

Tasting notes: In the late '80s and early '90s, the 1980 Clos de la Roche VV was a spectacular wine. A recent bottle tasted in France sourced directly from the domaine was fresh, vibrant and still drinking beautifully with the sole exception of an ever-so-slightly thinning finish. The nose is as fully complex and beguiling as it ever was and the richness and intensity of the velvety flavors is nothing other than spectacular. That said I would be looking for reasons to drink this though I emphasize that there is no rush, just that it's not going to hold forever. Burg 97
Retail Price: $23,450
