Jancis took this picture of the brand new premises of Laurent Ponsot in a business park on the outskirts of Gilly-lès-Cîteaux, just next door to Mark Haisma's new premises. Laurent has broken away from the family-owned Domaine Ponsot above Morey-St-Denis, which is now run by Laurent's sister. Neither producer was visited this year.
DOMAINE AGNÈS PAQUET, Meloisey
Fruity, rather floral and slightly simple nose with a vaguely metallic tinge to the palate.
Bone-dry grapefruit juice. Solid but not desperately exciting. A bit foot-dragging.
Light, sleek nose with everything in place. This may be GV? Lots of chew and texture but great balance.
Light and a little raw on the end. Not much intensity or follow-through.
FRANÇOIS PARENT, Pommard
RH: Good, classic styling with a strong sense of identity.
Delicious nutty aromas with a flinty, sulphidic nose that gives great complexity to the palate. Vivid apple fruit with a long finish and plump body offset by vibrant acidity. Chewy, lengthy finish. (RH)
Expressive, almost acrid smoke aromas from toasted oak, then crunchy black fruit with a rich, lengthy ripeness on the finish. Intense and broad. (RH)
Rosehip and redcurrant on the nose, in a fairly restrained style with tight tannins and bright acidity. Tangy and glossy with perhaps not quite enough flavour concentration to last a very long time, but plenty to satisfy in the medium term. (RH)
