1993 Ponsot Clos St Denis Cuvee Vieilles Vignes
Quantity to Purchase:

Size=750 ml, RP[96]

"The Clos St.-Denis vineyard is scheduled to be replanted in 1996 so the 1994 and 1995 will be the last Domaine Ponsot wines from Clos St.-Denis. Only 400 bottles of the 1993 were produced and only a whopping 24 bottles will make it to the United States. A fabulously concentrated wine with old vine intensity, an inner-core of sweetness, full body, and brilliant balance, it is loaded with fleshy, ripe, concentrated Pinot fruit. Cellar it for 4-5 years and drink it over the subsequent 20. While I am a great believer that low yielding, highly concentrated Pinot Noir deserves plenty of toasty new oak, there is not one new oak barrel to be found in Ponsot's cellar. The average age of the barrels is between 30-60 years, thus proving that there is at least one exception to the rule that the greatest red Burgundies are kept in new oak casks!" - Robert Parker, robertparker.com (Aug 30, 1995)
