Warm baking spices, crushed river rocks, lemon peel, and white flowers frame the orchard fruits in this broad-shouldered and beautifully textured '11 Morey-St-Denis Clos des Monts Luisants. 2011 saw the centennial of Domaine Ponsot's exceptional Aligote Clos des Monts vineyard; the '11 Morey-St-Denis Blanc Clos des Monts Luisants is a towering tribute to this extraordinary monopole.

Deriving from a 2.5-acre monopole of rare hundred-year-old Aligote vines situated at the peak of the slope, the grapes for this wine ferment in open, temperature-controlled vats, and the wine ages in oak, almost always used, for two years.

Domaine Ponsot Description

Laurent Ponsot, the current owner and winemaker of the family-run Domaine Ponsot, bases his practices on this simple, if impassioned, philosophy.
