1999 was the first year this Grand Cru was offered by Domaine Ponsot. It derives from a tiny plot of 0.4 hectares of vines in Petit Maupertuis on the upper slope of the clos—very near Grands-Échezeaux—and from a smaller parcel of old vines in Quatorze Journaux, below the central part of Château de la Tour’s vines (in the middle of the vineyard). The vines have an average age of 50 years and always produce a stunning, leviathan rendition of the clos. The 2020 is a monumental classic: a deep, hedonistic blackcurrant-fruited wine with the powerful structure to ensure decades of aging.

Reviews

“From Petit Maupertuis. Rich heady purple. The nose is excellent, with more open fruit than many of the Ponsot 2020s at this stage. Dark but not black fruit, an excellent thread of acidity which marries well with the fruit, ripe tannins, structure and stature and very attractive fruit.”
93-96 points, Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy
“Aromas of red berries, plums and cassis mingled with exotic spices and incense introduce the 2020 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru, a full-bodied, rich and layered wine that's muscular and vibrant, displaying considerable concentration and an abundance of ripe, powdery tannins. This is a very promising cuvée, but it will demand patience.”
93-95 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
