2005 Domaine Ponsot Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru "Cuvée des Alouettes"

SKU #1127018 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From upper slopes and younger vines within the estate monopole of Clos des Mont Luisants comes the 2005 Morey-St.-Denis 1er Cru Cuvee des Alouettes. Smelling of blackberry and black cherry jam, chocolate, toasted almond, coconut, and mint, this fills the mouth with confiture and nut brittle flavors and offers exotic, high-toned inner-mouth esters and a tactile sense of stony, chalky minerality that sets up counterpoint with the wine’s remarkable creaminess. A forceful finish cannot be said to possess strong delineation or refinement, but what sheer richness and length! (DS) Inner quote mark (4/2007)

90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full medium ruby. Blackberry, brown spices and vanillin oak on the rather high-toned nose. Broad and expressive in the mouth, with explosive black raspberry and mineral flavors showing more definition than the Charmes. Offers noteworthy power and lift. Finishes with fine, dusty tannins and excellent persistence of fruit. Especially impressive for young vines. (ST) Inner quote mark (4/2007)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is very ripe, indeed so ripe that it stops just short of surmaturité yet the jammy aromas of black cherry and raspberry remain fresh and bright, leading to mouth coating and exceptionally rich and velvety flavors that are quite forward but are supported by almost invisible tannins underneath all of the palate saturating sap. This has grand cru size and weight if not the sheer depth and this is a harmonious and balanced effort. Very impressive and recommended. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2008)
