Domaine Ponsot Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Clos des Monts Luisants Blanc 2015

Not only is it a monopole, it is also the only 1er cru for white in Morey-Saint-Denis and the only 1er Cru that is 100% (old vine) Aligoté in all of Burgundy! At different times in this vineyard's history there have been small quantities of Chardonnay and 'Pinot Gouges' (a white mutation from Pinot Noir) in the blend, yet from 2006 it returned to its pre 1930s origins of 100% Aligoté, from an ancient, mostly bush vine selection planted in 1911. There is a good reason for this - Aligoté has always produced outstanding wine here, better than anything the Ponsot clan could muster from Chardonnay. It seems that this high altitude, rocky site seems to have a natural affinity with Aligoté.
The 2015 is a wine of incredible depth, racy, mineral energy, pulpy texture and longevity. It was whole bunch pressed in Ponsot's vertical press and aged in old, neutral barrels (all between 10-60 years old).
