Back Vintages Ponsot
 

The shock waves are still reverberating from Burgundy following Laurent Ponsot’s announcement that not only was he leaving his family domaine but that he was already in an advanced stage of planning his new venture. The new company, which will trade simply under the name Laurent Ponsot, is registered as a negociant and will source grapes from vineyards which he owns as well as from joint ventures with other growers.

At this stage we do not know exactly what the future holds for Domaine Ponsot but we are sure that without Laurent’s larger than life presence things will never be quite the same again. Laurent is a man of strongly held views which have not always met with universal agreement, whether it was his insistence on picking very late or his use of surgical grade plastic closures instead of cork. Whatever course of action he decided on was always after considerable thought and examination of all possible options, an approach which brought his wines widespread acclaim and a worldwide following.

Those of us who have experienced tasting Laurent’s wines with him in Hong Kong or enjoyed his hospitality in Burgundy will want to wish him well on his next step. If there is any consolation it is that Altaya have accumulated ample stocks of Ponsot wines from several vintages purchased direct from the domaine.
