Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2001 Chambertin from Laurent Ponsot has a floral, vivacious bouquet with red cherry cheesecake, orange blossom and maraschino all very pure...the palate is nicely balanced with a candied core of effervescent red fruit...

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Ponsot: With an outspoken and involved creative genius at the helm, Domaine Ponsot is a relatively new Burgundian winery but one that's been turning heads in the past decades. With a strict non-interventionist tradition to uphold, the talented people behind the estate's reputation work tirelessly to deliver mouth-watering quality every year - and their consistency has been quite impressive. They're versatile, proficient, and hard-working, qualities which are rarely found together in most new wineries of today. The richness and depth of flavor on display here could rival far more expensive and luxurious brands, which has the side-effect of making Domaine Ponsot wines very popular among bidders and collectors. The wines are generous, elegant, and the fruit is perfectly ripe, so each sip is a journey into one's heart and soul.

Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
