Pale gold in colour. Skinnsy aromas with an oxidative note like manzanilla. Lemon blossom with some mineral flinty notes. A lot happening and changing - after a few hours a bruised old Apple note. I think in a line up of Chardonnays in Burgundy one might pick this as the 100% Aligote - it is sufficiently different. Expensive for an Aligote but then again it is Ponsot. Laurent Ponsot is fanatical about accurately translating the terroir - so there is no malolactic fermentation, no new oak, no batonnage,no fining, and no filtration. According to Laurent, the Monts Luisants hillside has been planted with white grapes since the Middle Ages or before. There used to be a little Chardonnay and a hybrid known as Pinot Gouges but by 2004 the latter 2 were grubbed out so that from 2005 the Clos des Monts Luisants Vieilles Vignes consists purely of Aligote from the original 1911 planting. A Monopole and one of the 1001 Wines. — a month ago

A legend amongst fine Burgundies. The color seems young, still, medium garnet and very light rim. The nose is truly captivating with clean potting soil and soft ripe red fruit aromas. The mouthfeel is even better with cherry, clean earthy flavors, mushroom, and hibiscus. This is a fine, delicate and perfectly balanced wine: as decadent as Pinot Noir can be! — 2 months ago
Very orange/brown. Big butterscotch, banana nose with an intensely saline palate. Yumm. Equipo has been wonderful, up and down the line.
