    March 19, 2022 - While many 93 Burgs have been under rated, this one was disappointing. Cherry nose but not a lot of depth. Acid palate was not balanced with enough fruit. Maybe this was the beginning of what became the 1996 disaster for Ponsot.

    April 13, 2018 - Burghound Symposium Asia - 1993 vintage dinner (Shanghai): This wine wasn't bad but compared to the two other Ponsots CSD/CDR and also the very strong peer group it fell off. Cloudy, dark garnet. Rich and ripe palate, sour cherry, good acidity but the tannins produce a drying finish. Probably picked too late, extracted too much.

    September 15, 2017 - Casual Champagne/ Burgundy Dinner Post Auction (Smyth - Chicago IL): Black fruit with lots of earth, slightly dirty. One person thought it corked, but I found it consistent with the earthy (maybe bretty, almost moldy) character from some older Ponsot that never fully came together. So sad, in contrast to the 1990 in the next glass.

    June 23, 2017 - Coche Corton dinner. Blind wine to break-up whites. Seriously sedimented. Really sweet nose. Super savory palate.

    March 23, 2016 - Nice but needs some more time or just fiercely tannic. Very interesting complete and complex wine... just not mind blowing. Very much a Gevrey. Good with food and would have benefited from a longer decant.

    (Ponsot Griotte-Chambertin) The only wine not decanted - and didn't it show, Medium-plus ruby with a trace of amber at the rim. For around 15 minutes this wine had absolutely no perceptible smell - eventually a beautiful pure redcurrant and griotte nose came through, all the while increasing in intensity. Perfect acidity and slightly rasping tannins which subsided with time. There is understated red fruit of medium concentration that lingers well but not much more that I can add. Unfortunately this wine was 'sacrificed' - doesn't seem to have the class or the concentration of the wines above or '93 Drouhin wine, but it is closed tight shut so I'll reserve judgement for another day. Requires at least 2 hours in a decanter or better still 3-5 more years somewhere cold and dark - still I've got two more chances of getting this right!
