Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
One of the Burgundy’s great wines from one of the world’s great winemakers and one of recent history’s most interesting and challenging vintages, Domaine Ponsot’s 2011 Clos de la Roche Grand Cru is a stunner. Framing its pure, sweet Pinot Noir fruit with crushed violet petals, warm earth, baking spices, and a kiss of animale underbrush, the aromatics of this compelling, tension-filled wine offer a captivating mixture of seduction and restraint. Sweet fruits echo on the intense and energetic palate that adds fresh-pressed wild herbs and a decadent, supple texture; fine-grained yet serious tannins, an opulent texture, and elegant acidity meld seamlessly on the wine’s kaleidoscopic, resonant finish. Just entering its drinking window, this blockbuster Clos de La Roche has years ahead of it. Deriving from an 8.4-acre plot planted in 1947, the grapes for this wine macerate for two weeks in oak vats, fermenting with only wild yeasts; the wine ages in used oak and is bottled without fining, filtration or added sulfur. This extremely age-worthy wine can be enjoyed now with thorough decantation, but it will easily drink for another three decades, possibly longer.
