Yet, ever the iconoclast, and with Burgundy in his blood, we all knew that we would see l aurent Ponsot on a wine label again–it was only a matter of time. That time has come. l aurent's new project bears his name on the label, with a refined focus on exposing the unique and sometimes unknown terroirs found throughout Burgundy's villages. With the help of his son, Clément, the new l aurent Ponsot takes advantage of both vineyard holdings that they farm as well as grapes purchased as a négociant. This mix will provide their fans with an entirely new take on Burgundy through the eyes of Ponsot. We will all miss Clos de la Roche, yet it seems that the sky is the limit for the future of l aurent Ponsot, and just in time for the 2016 vintage. ✦ Laurent Ponsot rating bottle Bourgogne Blanc Cuvée du Perce-Neige 2016 (1005490) $48 Gevrey Chambertin Cuvée de L' a uine 2016 (1005498) JG 92 $95 Griotte Chambertin Cuvée du Saule 2016 (1005501) JG 95 $775 Meursault Blagny Cuvée du Myosotis 2016 (1005492) JG 93 $215 Corton Charlemagne Cuvée du Kalimeris 2016 (1005495) JG 96 $350 T H e S KY iS TH e Li M i T The news that Laurent Ponsot was walking away from d omaine Ponsot and the vineyard holdings that he had made famous was a shock to Burgundy lovers across the globe.
