ponsot morey saint denis clos des monts luisants vieilles vignes

The pic is from my bottle of the 2001, whereas this 2002 by comparison disappoints. Medium gold and plenty of oxidative aromas and flavours. Given that I (the hater of oxidation) still drank 3 glasses, shows there is still something positive to be said for the wine – though this is clearly an aberration – (mainly) aligoté isn’t susceptible to p.ox is it?

Medium gold. The nose hits you with mild oxidation and a pronounced mineral note. The palate is concentrated and mouth-watering – very long with the help of that acidity too. The oxidation is there in the flavours but on a lower level than the nose. Lots of dimension in the mid-palate but a shame the bottle is spoiled so…
Rebuy – Maybe another bottle
