Domaine Laurent Ponsot

Laurent Ponsot is not really a newcomer: after spending thirty-six years at the Ponsot estate, he left it at the start of 2017 but kept 3 hectares in ownership (or in sharecropping) (including the Grands Crus Griotte-Chambertin and Clos Saint-Denis), from which he reconstituted, by partnering with his son Clément, an activity bearing his name and bringing together wines from trade and from his own vines. Laurent Ponsot strives to produce “haute couture” wines, without chemicals in the vineyard, or new wood in aging, half in white from the Côte de Beaune and half in red. The innovations (technological blanking plugs, chips connected to the capsules, etc.) are very clever. Too little distributed in France, this new source of great Burgundy wines has dazzled us, earns its stripes and confirms its promises. 4 hectares of vines were bought in 2019 in Gevrey and Chambolle, so new wines will arrive soon.
