Ponsot seem to have nailed the 2011 vintage. The Morey-Saint-Denis Les Alouettes – made from the 1er cru Monts Luisants – is really showing well. The nose is forward offering quite refined notes of red berry fruit, plum, violets and a earthy minerality – quite sweet and ripe. On the palate rich and seductive fruit … very well balanced and pure. Love the midpalate refinement and the delicate balance … a beautiful effort.
