    The 2014 Corton Bressandes Grand Cru has a far more generous and giving bouquet than the 2014 Cuvée de Bourdon. It offers lush red cherries and raspberry preserve aromas, dried orange peel, a Corton Clos du Roi in some ways. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe red berry fruit and cracked black pepper, very saline in the mouth with impressive depth and structure on the finish. It starts closing up in the glass, but I think this will ultimately turn out to be an excellent, delicious and quite cerebral Corton Bressandes.

  • Domaine Ponsot has been a top producer and catalyst for innovation in Burgundy since 1872. After the Franco-Prussian War, William Ponsot settled in Morey-Saint-Denis, bought a vineyard, which included the 1er Cru monopole Clos des Monts Luisants and a parcel of Clos de la Roche, and began producing wine. In the 1930s, Williams's nephew Hippolyte was among the first producers in Burgundy to practice estate bottling, and took part in founding the A.O.C. classification. In the 1960s, Hippolyte's son, Jean-Marie, was one of the pioneers of clonal selection of Pinot Noir. In fact, many of the most important Pinot Noir clones originate from mother vines in Ponsot's vineyards.

    Today, under the control of Laurent Ponsot, the domaine produces wine from tiny yields and using no new oak, a regime that has been referred to as "perennially inconsistent." To this critique, Laurent says, "We are lazy, we don't interfere with nature. My aim is to express the vintage and the terroir through my wines, not to express myself. Some people say we are inconsistent. To me this is the greatest possible compliment."
