Identical Wines to Domaine Ponsot Don't miss the fantastic 2015's
 
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 have all been produced by Laurent Ponsot under a metayage arrangement. Ponsot leases the vines and one third of the finished wine is given to Chezeaux as payment.

Chezeaux Ponsot

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!
Ponsot samples

Late last year I was treated to a barrel sample tasting of the four Ponsot-produced wines. The wines were drawn off by Laurent and I can honestly say they were the best Ponsot wines I have ever tasted.

If you are a fan of Ponsot wines you should not miss today's offer for Domaine de Chezeaux. The Chambertin (made by Ponsot) and Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Cazetiers (made by Berthaut) have completely sold out.

At the time of writing we have the following left:

27 bottles Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru
10 bottles Clos St-Denis Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru
12 bottles Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes

Prices for the Griotte-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny are much the same as 2014 which makes them serious bargains. Please act quickly as quantities of 2015 are very limited.
Domaine des Chezeaux (Ponsot) 
Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru 2015
Normal Price $495.00
Pre Arrival Price $420.50
Chezeaux Griottes Burghound: 
A wonderfully spicy, elegant and fresh nose blends notes of red and dark cherry with those of cassis, plum, violet and discreet earth nuances. The intense and tautly muscular middle weight plus flavors are even more refined if perhaps not quite as mineral-driven while delivering superb length on the balanced but markedly austere finish where a touch of cherry pit emerges. This is also very clearly built-to-age and I wouldn't dream of touching a bottle for at least 10 years and it should easily reward 20. (Drink starting 2035). 92-95 Points
Domaine des Chezeaux (Ponsot) 
Clos St-Denis Vieilles Vignes 2015
Normal Price $865.00
Pre Arrival Price $735.00

Chezeaux Denis Label Burghound: 
A kaleidoscopically spicy and subtly floral nose is even more discreet if patently classier with its lovely aromas of red and dark cherry liqueur, lilac, tea and softly anise-tinged aromas. The sweet, pure and understated flavors are underpinned by firm and dense but quite fine tannins that support the mouth coating, indeed palate staining finish that is impeccably well-balanced and sneaky long. There is ample sap to buffer the structure and unlike many of these grands crus, this should actually be approachable young. In sum, this is a magnificent CSD. (Drink starting 2033). 93-96 Points
Domaine des Chezeaux (Ponsot) Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes 2015
Normal Price $235.00
Pre Arrival Price $199.95

Chezeaux Charmes label Decanter:
Pure raspberry nose with exquisite aromas that one hopes to find, not always with success, in Chambolle. Heady and seductive. Rich, sleek fruits dance on the intense palate with nervous energy, backed by fine acidity that gives persistence and drive. Long, classy finish. Drinking Window 2018 - 2030. 93 Points
