CHAMBERTIN CLOS DE BEZE GRAND CRU, DOMAINE PONSOT 2010

$6,000.00

Allen Meadows of Burghound shared the following from his time with Laurent Ponsot: “The always direct Laurent Ponsot minced no words about 2009, succinctly observing that to ‘make bad wine in a vintage as good as this one you had to do it on purpose! I waited until the 26th of September to begin picking and brought in clean and generous yields that averaged around 39 hl/ha versus my usual average of about 26 hl/ha. The fruit was uniformly ripe and averaged around 14% in terms of potential alcohol and thus I obviously chaptalized nothing. In terms of the wines, for me the word for the vintage is balance. And while I have heard some people criticize the vintage for lacking a clear sense of the underlying terroir, I do not find that to be true at all, in fact I think that the wines are picture perfect in this regard
