    (Domaine Ponsot Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Charmes) This domaine has its origins in the acquisition of vineyards by William Ponsot in 1872, following his return home after the Franco-Prussian War. It remains in the hands of his descendents today. This wine has a slightly cloudy appearance, a very fine sediment suspended within, and it has a very mature, almost tawny hue. The nose is warm, with a touch of balsamic, although it comes down on the sweet, slightly volatile side rather than the overtly acetic. I like it, even though it reminds me a little of Vega Sicilia. Rich, with great substance on the palate, rounded and polished, meaty yet elegant, with good harmony. Not the vigour of the Dujac, but it remains well defined through to the finish. Long, too. Probably one of my favourites of this tasting - for current drinking, at least.
