Ponsot Morey-Saint-Denis, Clos des Mont Luisants, Très Vieilles Vignes 2013
Here is how Domaine Ponsot describes this wine: "This original white wine is a rarity for several reasons. First of all, it is one of the rare white first growths of the Côte de Nuits, and it is especially the only one which is planted with white grapes since the Middle Ages. And its name has been given then because of this characteristic, already unusual at that time. Indeed,in the autumn, when the leaves of the vines turn their colour, the pinot noir becomes ochre, red, while the white grapes vines see their leaves changing into yellow, or gold. And this vine of Aligoté is planted very high on the slope. In the sun of October, this square of vine of around one hectare (2.5acres) seems to shine in the middle of the Red Sea of the Grand Cru's pinots noirs."
"Taken directly from tank, the 2013 Morey-Saint-Denis Clos des Mont Luisants Blanc Vieilles Vignes has a fragrant, lightly resinous bouquet that is well defined and focused. The palate is sensual, nicely balanced with just a touch of clear honey, smooth in the mouth with a rounded and surprisingly rich finish. Excellent." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (12/29/2014, Issue 216),

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.
