    (Ponsot Close de la Roche V.V.) A 1999 Ponsot Close de la Roche V.V. had chunky, thick fruit in that 1999 way. Vitamins jumped out of the nose, with hints of medicine dropper, baby style. It was very wild with lots of kinky raspberry fruit. The palate was rich and concentrated, again with a hint of medicine, along with some iron. The wine was fleshy, kinky, sweet and unusual Burgundy. I saw the style of 1999 in the wine, but overall it was atypical (92).

    (Ponsot Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes) The nose is wild here with loads of perfumed potpourri spice with big red fruits and lots of earth. Great nose. The palate is insanely concentrated with loads of sweet ripe tannin. A young wine with ages to go but really shows its class on the palate. Bright acidity and great mouthfeel add dimension to the very vivid fruit. Long finish. This did close down towards the end of the night. Out of many '99 red burgs tasted recently this was the best (Lignier MSD 1er, Dujac Clos St. Denis, Rousseau CSJ, Lignier Chambolle-Baudes, Jadot Bonnes Mares, Dujac GC Combottes)
