2001 ponsot morey st.denis

Tomorrow will kick-off the first of about 8 days of concentrated tasting; I start with a dinner with 12 super wines – all from magnum – then Tuesday will see a large Pommard tasting, Thursday and Friday I have visits at a number of domaines. Saturday sees yet-more 2004’s. I won’t have time to write up all the notes before the next report – but c’est la vie!
2001 Laurent Ponsot, Morey St.Denis Cuvée des Grivestry to find this wine...
Medium ruby-red. The first impression from the nose is of soft, dark oak plus an equally soft red and black berry fruit. The palate is red fruity with a little tartness to the acidity, medium density and reasonable length. The texture is almost good, just a little grain to the medium-minus tannins. This is another (junior) Ponsot from 2001 that misses a little ripeness – or at least that’s the impression from the acidity – though it’s a lttle better than the village Gevrey. Rather like that Gevrey (who’s aromatics I prefered) it’s a wine that I can enjoy, but I wouldn’t buy it again.
Rebuy – no
