08 Ponsot Clos de la Roche

2008 Domaine Ponsot Clos de la Roche cuvee Vielles Vignes;
Bright ruby. Quite intense nose of strawberries, redcurrant's and vanilla. Slightly earthy underneath, almost mineraly, violets and the most seductive roses you may find. Fresh acidity, almost raw texture, getting more rounded and balanced with a lot of air. Tannins ripe and polished, fairly full bodied for Burgundy, playful and lively, plays on all levels. Tender, delicate, transparent, subdued, yet intense. This is not a wine everyone will, or can appreciate. For those that are able to unlock and evaluate it, it will repay you in abundance. Magnificent aftertaste, not waves, but more like a surfer's wet dream, of tastes, impressions, perfection in the finish. Stunning. Truly long. 96-97
