Domaine Ponsot Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru, Cote de Nuits, France 2017

Regular price $ 730.80

One of the highlights of the Ponsot portfolio, the 2017 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru offers up a classy bouquet of cherries, wild berries, sweet spices, candied peel and rose petals, with as yet little evidence of the savory nuances that will emerge with bottle age. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, satiny and layered, with considerable depth and concentration and a lovely line of acidity that lends it energy and delineation. As winemaker Alex Abel and I tasted this wine, I reminisced about a superb recent bottle of the 1999 Chapelle-Chambertin, and he replied that the 1999 vintage of this cuvée is the inspiration behind a concerted effort to render Ponsot's Chapelle-Chambertin in a more elegant register.
