Domaine Ponsot Clos de la Roche Cuvée Vieilles Vignes
(2002 Vintage) "Full, rich and very, very concentrated nose. Essence of wine here. Splendid grip. Very classy fruit. Mouth filling. Great energy and purity. Very fine indeed." (Clive Coates - The Vine - Jan-2003)
International Wine CellarGood deep red. Superripe, slightly decadent aromas of red cherry, leather and underbrush. Plush, fat and large-scaled; a full-blown expression of soil, with notes of smoke and game. This boasts extraordinary sweetness for the vintage, remaining just this side of over the top. Just a hint of nut skin on the finish. Very sexy wine.
