Community Tasting Notes 2
gilrbo Likes this wine:
October 15, 2015 - Only 1576 bottles produced.
Opened at 4pm, double decanted just before dinner four hours later.
Color is light and now tending to garnet.
Immediately after opening this showed very dark and fleshy fruit. Later for dinner, it went clearly towards tertiary notes, of autumnal forest floor. After time in the glass it got cleaner and more precise towards leather. Very elegant.
On the palate it's remarkably smooth and silky. Body and lively acidity. Not much fruit, all on minerality, in a deep way. Very good, but I liked better the Fourrier of the same vintage drunk some days ago.

August 3, 2010 - Beautiful structure, immense finish, the fruit is vibrant and while it is drinking well, the wine could handle a few more years to take on some earthier tones. I could still taste the finish of the Ponsot while we were deep into the next bottle of Bordeaux!
