(from a .90 ha parcel) An exuberantly spicy and ripe nose of red and black cherries nuanced by hints of smoke, anise and crushed herb merges seamlessly into classy, seductive and opulently textured flavors that are borderline thick as there is so much dry extract and sap on the sweet and palate staining finish. This is a big Griotte yet it remains balanced, focused, delineated and delivers flat out tremendous persistence. A wow wine.

Good ruby-red. Sappy, liqueur-like aromas of griotte cherry and black raspberry. Wonderfully intense and concentrated, with a nearly confectionery sweetness to its explosive fruit flavors. Like the Cuvee des Alouettes, this comes across as a bit high-toned and will require careful attention during its final months of elevage But offers great potential.

Ponsot's 2005 Griottes-Chambertin displays a wonderful depth and clarity of fruit and tactile pungency of spice, with black and red cherry seasoned by nutmeg, cinnamon, and cardamom. This finishes with exuberance and a sheer juiciness that is not the forte of most of Ponsot's wines. Chalky minerality and bouillon-like meaty richness also emerge in the end.
