Domaine des Chézeaux owns nearly 60% of Griotte-Chambertin (1.57 hectares) as well as vines in Clos St. Denis, Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Charmes, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Lavaut St-Jacques and Cazetiers and Gevrey villages.
While Domaine des Chézeaux sells wine under its own label, it does not work the vines or make the wines. The Griottes-Chambertin, Clos St. Denis, Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Charmes are all produced by Domaine Ponsot under a metayage arrangement. Ponsot leases the vines and one third of the finished wine is given to Chezeaux as payment.
These wines are identical to those bottled under the Ponsot label (simply one third of the bottled wines are returned to Chezeaux). In fact the bottles bear the name Ponsot molded on the base, the same modern synthetic cork and the label states "Eleve, vinifie et mis en bouteille par le Domaine Ponsot". Only the label design is different!
If you are a fan of Ponsot wines you should not miss today's offer for Domaine de Chezeaux.
We have 4 different wines from 2014, including the Clos St-Denis from 100+ year old vines, available at exceptional prices. The wines will arrive in Australia early next month.
Here's just one wine. Check out the full range. The wines have serious scores!
