Ponsot Morey-Saint-Denis Cuvée des Grives 2013
• Domaine: Ponsot
• Appellation (AOC): Morey-Saint-Denis
• Classification: Morey-Saint-Denis, Côte de Nuits, Côte-d’Or, Burgundy
• Varietal: Pinot Noir
For historical reasons, Morey-Saint-Denis does not possess the same name recognition as its more famous neighbors both to the north and south: Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny. Interestingly, one of the most sought-after grands crus, Bonnes-Mares, sticks out of Chambolle-Musigny into Morey-Saint-Denis.
"The 2013 Morey Saint Denis Cuvée des Grives has a crisp iodine and raspberry preserve-scented nose, slightly reduced but that will blow off. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip, a fresh line of acidity and a pastille-like finish laden with tense bilberry and blackcurrant notes. Perhaps a tad rustic compared to Ponsot's other 2013s, I would drink this over the next six or seven years." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (12/29/2014, Issue 216), Rating: 87-89, Drink: 2015-2021
Effective October 18, 2019, the US Trade Representative's Office imposed a new 25% value-added tax (i.e., import tariffs) on a wide range of European products (including French wine, Italian cheese and single malt Scotch whisky) to penalize EU subsidies for Airbus. EU has made counter-claims agains the US subsidies for Boeing. A ruling by WTO on EU's counter-claims is expected in the spring of 2020.
For any Futures (en primeur) and Pre-Arrival items, our current prices are shown before taxes and tariffs. Prior to shipment, we may have to collect any tariffs levied by the US government at the time. Tariffs will be based on the date of importation and the rate of US tariffs in place at the time. Current rules exempt wines with alcohol content above 14.5% from the newly imposed 25% tariffs. We will offer free storage in our professional wine cellar in Bordeaux in the event of any delay in importation caused by the uncertainties created by tariffs.
If you believe these tariffs are NOT in the best interest of US consumers like yourself, please consider writing to your congressional representatives to let them hear your voice. You can find out how to contact your representatives here using this directory provided by the US Congress.
