Last bottle of this that we had was about 2 years ago. I think we may have 1-2 left. Definitely no need to wait more, this is in a prime spot. Absolutely beautiful aromatics. So pure and mouth filling and just the hint of secondary fruit starting to poke through. Extremely balanced with beautiful refreshing acid on the finish. Finish itself goes on for quite a while. Excellent pairing with a buttermilk brined roast chicken. What a treat.

Really disappointing, it finished abruptly and unpleasantly.

Truly excellent. What a wine. Great drinking window and wouldn’t mind trying in 3-5 years as well. A 1998 Lignier Clos de la Roche is one of the wines that impacted me the most, and was very excited to try Ponsot. Very pure and precise but quite hedonistic. Incredibly mouth filling with a very, very long finish. Excellent balance and mouthfeel. Simply delicious.

Lots of animality in this wine. Ponsot definetely makes a special style of wines. Good but not performing as well as expected.
