    Clos de la Roche 1978
    Domaine Ponsot
    2cc, 1sdc, 3cuc to show cork branding
    Bottle (3)


    "I have had some excellent bottles and some that seemed a bit tired. The best examples combine the complexity of the perfectly mature and still vibrant aromas with a fantastic array of spice, earth, a hint of sous bois and a maple syrup quality followed by velvety, round, big, rich and deep flavors that culminate in a wonderfully long, velvety and mouth coating finish. The less interesting examples seem somewhat advanced on the nose with a hint of stewiness to the otherwise delicious flavors but the finish seems a bit tired. In short, I have experienced plenty of variability but the best examples are still terrific." (93 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Dec. 2008)
