2016 domaine ponsot, corton-charlemagne grand cru
Why We're Buying
Domaine Ponsot Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru uses only the best grapes from one of the best parcels in France. The result is a flawless cuvée with a seamless body, never-ending depth, and a warm finish. Unsurprisingly, this chardonnay ranks as one of the most coveted wines from Corton-Charlemagne.
Pale yellow, a bit lighter than the Monts Luisants. Very pure aromas of citrus fruits, white peach and crushed stone. A very fresh, pristine style that's rather closed and backward following the bottling but not hard or austere. This wine fills the mouth without giving any impression of weightiness or overripeness. Most impressive today on the very long, rising, mineral-tinged finish, which leaves behind a salty character. 92-94 Points
