Review PONSOT CHAPELLE CHAMBERTIN GRAND CRU 2006 1.5L
PONSOT CHAPELLE CHAMBERTIN GRAND CRU 2006 1.5L
93-94 Points -David Schildknecht - The Wine Advocate: "The energy and lift here should persist in bottle for at least a decade, I predict, and are especially remarkable when one remembers that Ponsot eschews sulfur. Ponsot's 2006 Chapelle-Chambertin – his last-bottled wine of the vintage, and which I last tasted from its four barrels – offers smoke, leather, ripe plum, and high-toned maraschino in the nose, leading to a richly-fruited as well as richly meaty, yet bright and buoyant palate that proves transparent to mineral and animal nuances as well as prodigiously persistent. The ample tannins here are refined and deftly woven into the wine's fabric. This should be a superb candidate for 12-15 years fascinating evolution, though one that should already deliver enormous pleasure and intrigue as soon as it recovers from bottling. Didn't somebody speak about hail in this vineyard, too?!"
