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." 

Tasting Notes

"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),
