Ponsot Grand Cru Burgundy

Clos de la Roche
6 bottles available 
2011 Ponsot Clos de La Roche VV Grand Cru... $575 / bottle net
"Don't Miss! A discreet application of wood does not reduce the considerable appeal of the ripe, pure and airy nose with its broad m√©lange of wild red berry fruit liqueur, earth, spice, violets and a hint of animale. The broad-shouldered flavors possess superb mid-palate concentration that enrobes the buried but still quite firm tannins while culminating in a beautifully balanced, muscular and explosively long finish. This is also very clearly built to age yet like the Clos St. Denis, there is so much sap that this could be drunk now with pleasure. A 'wow' wine." 
Rated 95-97/100 Burghound

6 bottle available
2011 Ponsot Chapelle Chambertin Grand Cru...$390 / net per bottle
"Don't miss! ...A brooding and inexpressive nose of both red and dark berry fruit evidences discreet liqueur-like nuances as well. The impressively scaled and palate coating flavors coat the mouth with dry extract and possess imposing size and weight before culminating in a firm, austere and beautifully persistent finish. This is not for the faint-hearted as it's a big Chapelle and clearly intended to be cellared for the long haul as this is also not going to drink especially well young." 
Rated 92-95/100 Burghound
