Domaine Ponsot Chapelle Chambertin 2009, 750mL (BH92) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Domaine Ponsot Chapelle Chambertin

750mL

Vintage: 2009
Region: France--Burgundy--Red
Appellation: Gevrey Chambertin, Cote de Nuits

BH92
Rated 92 points by the Burghound: `(from a .60 ha parcel split 50/50 between Chapelle and En Gemeaux). This is exceptionally ripe with dense aromas of cassis, plum and earth. There is excellent phenolic maturity to the equally ripe and very concentrated, even opulent flavors that hint at an underlying minerality on the long but slightly flat finish. To be sure, this is very impressive in it sheer size and weight yet it is borderline too ripe for my taste and lacks a bit of energy. In fairness, it`s entirely possible that this is suffering a bit from the recent bottling as some wines do become fatigued. If so my score will seem unduly conservative in time.` -- Allen MeadowsMore information from the Burghound: `The always direct Laurent Ponsot unequivocally pronounced that 2010 `is every bit as good as 2009 but completely different. There are a number of differences but perhaps first among them is that 2009 is much more marked by its vintage whereas 2010 is classic and transparent. Because I don`t really have any vines down by the main road I sustained very little in the way of frost damage but because of the poor and extended flowering, there were by contrast a lot of shot berries. As usual, I elected to begin picking very late and didn`t start until the 1st of October. There was essentially no sorting work necessary for rot though it was necessary to eliminate some under ripe berries. Yields were definitely down as my hectare equivalent crop was only 24 hl/ha. By contrast, potential alcohols were excellent at between 13.5 and 14%. I did my usual vinification of a 12 to 18 day cuvaison with 100% destemmed fruit. Given that the fruit was very clean there were really no issues to speak of though I will say that I was most agreeably surprised by the quality of the wines, in particular their sense of harmony and impeccable balance.` As was the case in 2009, there will be no Morey villages Cuvee des Grives in 2010 as the vineyard is being replanted. While I tasted only a limited range of bottled 2009s, with the exception of the Chapelle, all of them scored at or near the very top of my projected ranges. In another development, Ponsot continues to add to his already very broad range of grands crus as he has supplemented his lineup with an old vines Clos de Vougeot (see the review below) and on the white side a Montrachet; the latter will be reviewed in Issue 47.`
