Domaine Ponsot Collections

Domaine Ponsot is rich in history. It was one of the very first domaines in Burgundy to bottle its own wines (in the 1870s) and to begin selling wines under its own label (in the 1930s).

Ponsot has fabulous holdings including perfectly situated parcels of very old vines (100+ years) in Clos St Denis and Clos de la Roche, where Ponsot is the largest land owner with 3.4ha – some three-quarters of the original vineyard.

There are smaller holdings in Chambertin, Griotte Chambertin, Chapelle Chambertin, Clos de Bèze, Charmes Chambertin, Clos de Vougeot, Corton, Corton Bressandes, Corton Charlemagne, le Montrachet, Chambolle Musigny 1er cru Les Charmes, and Morey 1er cru Clos de la Monts Luisants (white and red). There is also some Bourgogne rouge and superb village wines from Morey, Gevrey and Chambolle.

No new oak is used. Ponsot buys five year old barrels from other respected domaines to use with his own wines. Most Ponsot barrels are between 10 and 50 years old.

The wines are harvested late (Ponsot is regularly the last Domaine to harvest in the Côte de Nuits) and strict sorting occurs in both vineyard and winery so that only perfect fruit makes it to the press.

Very low or no sulphur is used (including none at bottling if it can be avoided).

The wines are aged slowly on lees for up to 30 months with typically only one racking for the reds, after 12 months.

These elements (among others) make for very different, yet exceptional wines that typically require long ageing (or early decanting when young) to show their best.

Ponsot has a state of the art winery with temperature controlled, open-topped, wooden fermentation vats that can be operated via remote control. Yet wine is made very naturally with indigenous yeasts, low sulphur and minimal intervention. Wine is moved around using gravity rather than pumps.

As to the wines, they are recognised as among Burgundy’s greatest, noted both for their power and their ability to express a particular terroir.

They are expensive, but they are also profound.
