Domaine Ponsot is a famous fine-wine producer, nestled within the picturesque Chapelle-Chambertin appellation of Burgundy.
Hailed by the critic Robert Parker as “the most powerful wine in Burgundy” Domaine Ponsot boasts a rich history of innovation. Ponsot was one of the first Domaines to practise estate bottling in the 1930s and clonal selection - many of todays most important Pinot Noir clones impressively originate from their vineyards.
Boasting four family generations, the first Ponsot to manage the Domaine was William. On returning from the Franco-Prussian war he settled in Morey St Denis and bought the vineyard.
Today Domaine Ponsot produces wine from 10 vineyards, honoring a biodynamic process. Grapes are meticulously hand picked into wicker baskets for crushing on the winery's 1945-era vertical press.
Domaine Ponsot is best known for their Morey-Saint-Denis Blanc 1er cru Clos des Monts Luisants; the only Premier Cru Burgundy made entirely from Aligoté grapes. Their star reds, the Clos de la Roche Cuvée Vieilles Vignes, and the Clos St. Denis Cuvée Très Vieilles Vignes have also merited international acclaim.
