    May 18, 2021 - Broad, powerful and deep CLDR with earth, iron, blood, plums and dark fruit. Good clarity on the palate especially for Ponsot during this era which can be a bit dirty and inconsistent.

    January 26, 2021 - Ponsot Vertical 02, 05, 10: Wine 5, 2002 (my #3, groups #1)
    Young for a 2002, shows clean, bright red/blue fruit, a touch plummy then a little spicy with a dose of VA on the nose. Good energy, with a glossy cherry texture but perhaps a bit lean in comparison to the others. There is a consistent "sorbet-like" element to all the wines, very pure and intense without being jammy or cloying.

    September 16, 2020 - Deep nose of beef blood, iodine. Later some nail polish with good acidic lift. On the palate it started out fantastic but got a bit weird. Hmm, would need to revisit with more time. There was too much going on that night. Between 92-94 (so 93 for now). Interestingly bested for me by Arlaud 02 Clos Roche which most people preferred as well.

    June 12, 2020 - Candied, flowers, strawberry and spice. Fruit forward on the palate but elegant especially for a Ponsot. Straightforward without the grand cru complexity. Good drink but underwhelming if you compare to dujac and hubert lignier cdlr 2002. Drinking very well now.

    March 29, 2020 - Decanted 3 hours. Best part of this was uncorking and the soaring ripe red fruit from the glass. But hours later this was tart, muted and never really showed much at all. Not sure - possible an off bottle but not high on this one right now and would not bet on the future based on this bottle. B/B+

Rockss and Fruit

    (Ponsot Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes) This just was sensational albeit very very young. The nose was intense rasberry coulis mixed with spice dust, cinnamon and wet earth. The palate was velvety, seamless and concentrated with lots of power and richness which it wore gracefully. Lovely finish and lively fruit backed up by BIG acidity. This was essentially closed but still had enough there to be immensely pleasurable. Profound bottle of wine and one that will last easily 40-50 years in the cellar.
