(this is now 100% from Monts Luisants and not young vines Clos de la Roche) The strong reduction that was present from cask is still present if not in nearly so pungent a form leading to sweet, robust and serious medium full-bodied flavors that are blessed with plenty of dry extract that buffers the firm tannins on the pure, sweet and intense finish that displays real linearity and vibrancy where the reduction resurfaces. I did not have the opportunity to allow this to sit for half an hour or so to evaluate how the reduction behaved so while the underlying material appears promising, I must advise caution.

Good deep red. Pungent spices, mocha, chocolate and black cherry on the nose; this could only be from Morey-Saint-Denis. Big and rich, with a captivating sweetness to the soil-driven notes of smoke, meat, iron and leather. The subtly long finish throws off notes of leather, smoke and spice. This wonderfully aromatic wine comes from 14-year-old vines planted within Ponsot's Clos des Monts Luisants, which is situated above Clos de la Roche.
