Domaine Ponsot's Clos de la Roche Grand Cru, Vieilles Vignes, 1997 combines richness with elegance and complexity in its beautiful representation of this famous Burgundian terroir. Warm, mature and juicy with good grip and a long, fine finish. The big attraction here is the nose. Impressively complex and intense full of red and black fruits, spice and sous-bois. In short, a wonderful red Burgundy.

Clos de la Roche is the finest and biggest red grand cru appellation in Morey St Denis, Côte de Nuits. Its soils are rich with marl which gives the wine great ageing potential and complexity. The wines tend to be rich, full-bodied and powerful whilst packed with black fruit flavours.

Domaine Ponsot is one of the finest and and most renowned domaines of the area. Laurent Ponsot, currently at the head of the estate, uses old, traditional and somewhat unusual methods. He harvests his grapes late, allowing his grapes to ripen further which go on to produce wondeful flavours, then he ferments them in big 100-200 year old open top oak casks. The result is an unbelievably well-crafted and delicious wine.

The botte itself is in good condition but some of the labels are slightly damaged.
