The new 2017 Releases from Domaine des Chezeaux. Back vintages. Wines are about to leave France

Chezeaux Domaine 2017 PA limited header
Scarce 2017's from Domaine des Chezeaux. Made by Laurent Ponsot and Amelie Berthaut. Very limited indeed!
Created in 1982 from vines owned by the Mercier family since 1928, Domaine des Chezeaux comprises 4 hectares of high quality vineyards.
They own 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. All of their wines are made under metayage arrangements with either Laurent Ponsot or Amelie Berthaut.
The Griottes-Chambertin, Clos St. Denis, Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Charmes are made by Ponsot. The Gevrey 1er Cru and Village wines are made by Berthaut.
The arrangement is the same, and is indeed a very old French style of agreement. Ponsot and Berthaut work the vineyards and make the wines one third of the finished product is given to Chezeaux as payment.

The Domaine des Chezeaux wines are identical to those bottled under the Ponsot or Berthaut labels (simply one third of the bottled wines are returned to Chezeaux). Only the label design is different! (Oh, and the price - especially of the Ponsot-made wines).

If you are a fan of Domaine des Chezeaux, Ponsot or Berthaut  wines you should not miss today's Pre Arrival offer for Domaine de Chezeaux.

Stocks of some cuvees are now very limited.

Chezeaux Cazetiers LabelOne of Gevrey-Chambertin's top Premier Crus, Les Cazetiers lies alongside Clos St-Jacques. The vineyard produces fine, elegant, complex wines which Jasper Morris MW says "gives a feeling of refinement and precision which has an intellectual appeal as well as being vinously satisfying."
Chezeaux's Cazetiers holding is tiny at just 0.22 hectares, much of which was planted in 1944.

Chezeaux Charmes label John Gilman "View from the Cellar": As I noted last year, Laurent has retained his contract for the vineyards from Domaine des Chézeaux, so the Chambolle "Charmes" and the other wines made from the fermage agreement are much the same here as they were at Domaine Ponsot. The 2017 Charmes offers up a lovely and ripe bouquet of red plums, black cherries, beetroot, a touch of chocolate, a fien base of soil, gamebird and a topnote of mustard seed. On the palate the wine is deep, full and sappy at the core, with modest tannins, good, tangy acids and a very long, complex and quite plush finish. Good juice. 2022-2050+. 93 Points
Domaine des Chezeaux (Ponsot) 
Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru 
Normal Price $675.00
Pre Arrival Price $573.50
Chezeaux Griottes
John Gilman "View from the Cellar": 
The 2017 Griotte-Chambertin from the Ponsots is excellent and very much cut from the same stylistic cloth as it was back during Laurent's time at the helm of Domaine Ponsot in Morey. The ripe and very expressive nose wafts from the glass in a mix of sappy black cherries, black plums, dark chocolate, chalky soil tones, grilled meats, mustard seed and a bit of beetroot in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, precise and impressively mineral in personality, with a sappy core, ripe tannins and fine balance and grip on the long, tangy and complex finish. A superb Ponsot Griotte! 2027-2075. 
95 Points
Jasper Morris MW: Glowing fresh mid purple. Superb grace to the nose, magically juicy, then a firmer backbone behind. Some crunch here, only medium intensity, a wine to judge by its class more than its size. The fruit is ripe but not untidy, more in the fresh little red fruits register. Tasted: November 2018. 93-96 Points
Domaine des Chezeaux (Ponsot) 
Clos St-Denis Vieilles Vignes 2016
Normal Price $995.00
Pre Arrival Price $845.50
8 bottles left
Chezeaux Denis Label
Special conditions applicable to the Clos St-Denis Vieilles Vignes 2017:
This wine is allocated on a 
1 bottle for every 3 bottles of Griotte-Chambertin purchased.

From vines planted in 1905! This is always an exceptionally complex wine with incredible texture and intensity from the ancient vines. 

Jasper Morris MW: The vines were planted in 1905. The colour is an attractive rich mid purple. The nose is truly magisterial. Heady ripe red fruit, too well bred to count as an explosion of fruit. Too intense to be described as floral. Lovely balancing acidity and exceptional length. Hedonism in its optimal rather than maximal form. Tasted: November 2018. 5 Star Wine! 95-98 Points

Chezeaux Griottes
Domaine des Chezeaux (Ponsot) Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru 2016 

John Gilman "View from the Cellar": 
Very much in its customary style, offering up a ripe and sappy nose of black cherries, plums, chocolate, roasted meats, a fine base of soil, a touch of mustard seed and plenty of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, powerful and opulent in personality, with a sappy core, fine-grained tannins and excellent length and grip on the long, tangy and beautifully balanced finish. A classic Griotte in the making. 2031-2080. 95+ Points

Chezeaux Griottes
Domaine des Chezeaux (Ponsot) Griotte-Chambertin 2014
Last 3 Bottles
John Gilman "View from the Cellar"
: The 2014 Griotte-Chambertin from Laurent Ponsot is a stunning wine in the making, soaring from the glass in a very red fruity mélange of cherries, beetroot, a touch of red plum, gentle notes of grilled meat, a superb base of limestone, mustard seed and woodsmoke in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very transparent in personality, with a sappy core of fruit, lovely focus and grip, suave tannins and a very, very long, tangy and impeccably balanced finish. Great Griotte in the making. (Drink between 2025-2075).

Lignier Hubert Griotte
The Rare Hubert Lignier (Domaine des Chezeaux) Griottes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2014
1 bottle available
Domaine des Chezeaux are the largest owners of the Grand Cru Griotte-Chambertin. As you know their parcel is farmed en metayage by Ponsot with one third of the wine returned to Chezeaux and released under their own label.
What you may not know is that a smaller portion of Domaine des Chezeaux's Griotte vineyard has traditionally been farmed by Domaine Rene Leclerc. Domaine des Chezeaux has not been too impressed with Leclerc's effort and in 2014 the decision was made to make part of this portion available to Domaine Hubert Lignier. 

In 2014 Lignier made two barrels as an experimental cuvee. The first commercial release was the 2015.

We have 2 bottles of the Rare experimental 2014 in stock. Less than 600 bottles were made. This is something special for the cellar!
John Gilman "View from the Cellar": There are two casks of Griotte-Chambertin chez Lignier in 2014, with one of the barrels new and the other a three wine barrel in this vintage. The wine is really very lovely, wafting from the glass in a complex and red fruity blend of raspberries, cherries, coffee, grilled meats, excellent chalky minerality and cedar. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very transparent, with a great core of fruit, ripe, suave tannins and excellent focus and grip on the very long and very classy finish. A fine example of Griotte! (Drink between 2025-2075). 94 Points
