Clos de Vougeot Vieilles Vignes 2014 Domaine Ponsot
€ 458,59 (incl. BTW)
The 2014 Clos Vougeot Cuvée Vieilles Vignes took a little more coaxing from the glass than its fellow Grand Crus. Quite opaque at first, the nose is deep with a mixture of red and black fruit (blacker than Laurent Ponsot's Grand Crus from Gevrey for example). The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannin and grippy in the mouth, suggesting just a little more extraction perhaps? This has real weight and presence, though I would like to see more detail and tension come through on the finish. Whatever, it will need some serious aging in the cellar.
Much deeper crimson than the Chambertins from this address. Very concentrated nose. Solid overlay on some very punchy fruit. Lots of crunchy texture and attack. Very young. Quite severe tannins at the moment.?
