    Description

    Clos de la Roche 1996
    Vieilles Vignes, Ponsot
    Bottle (10)

    "In contrast to some of the Ponsot '96s the Clos de la Roche is really quite good with lovely aromatic complexity on the fully mature yet still vibrant and fresh red berry fruit, spice, earth, game and smoke hints. The is reasonably good density in the context of a vintage that produced any number of lighter wines and the old vines clearly show as the phenolic maturity of the remaining tannins is much better than the average '96, all wrapped in a delicious and solidly long finish that displays only a trace of acid tang. Tasted several times with mostly consistent notes." (91 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Apr. 2013)
