‘I am resistant to the use of new oak barrels whose addition of an “oak” taste … comes neither from the terroir, or from original grapes. I consider that the barrel is only a way to oxygenate the wine by respecting its ageing cycle.’
Laurent Ponsot, “High Priest of Burgundy”
Laurent Ponsot Gevrey-Chambertin Cuvée de l’Aulne 2016
Delicious, intense, pristine purity of raspberry fruit and rich, ripe tannins smoother than a ride in a Bentley. Wonderful freshness. Exemplary harmony of fruit, lift and caressing structure. Masterly winemaking. A benchmark Burgundy by which others are measured.
