Ponsot Morey-Saint-Denis, Clos des Mont Luisants, Très Vieilles Vignes 2013

Here is how Domaine Ponsot describes this wine: "This Originl white wine is a rarity for several reasons. First of all, it is one of the rare white first growths of the Côte de Nuits, and it is especially the only one which is planted with white grapes since the Middle Ages. And its name has been given then because of this characteristic, already unusual at that time. Indeed,in the autumn, when the leaves of the vines turn their colour, the pinot noir becomes ochre, red, while the white grapes vines see their leaves changing into yellow, or gold. And this vine of Aligoté is planted very high on the slope. In the sun of October, this square of vine of around one hectare (2.5acres) seems to shine in the middle of the Red Sea of the Grand Cru's pinots noirs." 

Tasting Notes

"The 2013 Morey Saint Denis Cuvée des Grives has a crisp iodine and raspberry preserve-scented nose, slightly reduced but that will blow off. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip, a fresh line of acidity and a pastille-like finish laden with tense bilberry and blackcurrant notes. Perhaps a tad rustic compared to Ponsot's other 2013s, I would drink this over the next six or seven years." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (12/29/2014, Issue 216), Rating: 87-89, Drink: 2015-2021
