This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

2007 Ponsot

Tasting of 2007 Ponsot wines at the Press Room, organized by Altaya Wines.  Laurent Ponsot was in town, and it was good to see him again a few weeks after our visit to his domaine.

2007 Ponsot Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Clos de Mont Luisants Blanc - nose of minerals and lemon.  Quite pleasant to drink.  This was labeled Vieilles Vignes as the vines were almost 100 years old...

2007 Ponsot Bourgogne Cuvée de Pinson - smoky, farmy, stinky with animal notes.

2007 Ponsot Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes - farmy, minty, some fruit on the nose.  Sweeter on the palate.

2007 Ponsot Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Cuvée des Alouettes - smoky with forest notes.  Very pleasant.

2007 Ponsot Chapelle-Chambertin - minty, smoky, fruity, earthy with minerals.

2007 Ponsot Griotte-Chambertin - more farmy with bacon fat, sweet, minty with herbs.  Very lovely.

2007 Ponsot Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes - a lovely and complex wine.  Perhaps not quite ready to be drunk tonight.
