Domaine Ponsot

The Morey Saint Denis village has been the headquarters to Domaine Ponsot since 1872.
Over time, the Estate has always been very invested in the history of great Burgundy wines.

A curiosity in the range: the old vines of aligoté (Clos des Monts Luisants). They render a cristal-like juice, with a saline finale. This wine can defy the odds and age for decades, a proof that centenial vines, when well cared for, are immortal.
