    May 21, 2021 - Served side by side (single blind) H Lignier CdR 99. I guessed this right, the wines were both showing very well in a early drinking window, the Ponsot like the Lignier had lovely earthy depth and mineral cut, good red fruits interlaced with some apparent stems. The Lignier just edged it for me and the group. But a lovely vindication for this bottling for me as I was served this wine a year ago from the same case by the same person but back then it didn't connect with me. Probably as last time round it was simply too late in the night and my palate had tired. This bottle was wonderful and I would say perfect drinking window is still a few years off. 94-95.

    September 16, 2020 - To me a disappointing showing when the bottle was revealed. I found it disjoint and awkward but couldn't put my hands on what was wrong. Not my cup of tea.

Rockss and Fruit

    (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)
