Domaine Ponsot : Griotte-Chambertin Grand cru 2007
Wine Advocate-Parker :
A striking nose of dark plum and fresh berries, bacon fat, and black tea in Ponsot's 2007 Griotte-Chambertin has its direct counterpart on a polished, expansive, sappy palate that leads to an arrestingly gripping yet at the same time uncannily buoyant finish. Persistent smokiness, berry tartness, animal savor, palpable underlying chalkiness, and saliva-inducing salinity make for compelling complexity and inducement to take the next sip. Look for 12-15 years of excitement here, if not more.
