Ponsot Gevrey l'Abeille 6/750 2009
Ah...Domaine Ponsot Cuvée de l’Abeille GEVREY CHAMBERTIN...amazing what 44 year old, densely planted Pinot Noir vines can convey when they set their roots on this limestone and clay slope -and all the better when tended according to sustainable, organic and biodynamic methods from the viticulture among the vines and the enology of the cellar.
Minimal intervention is de rigueur so nothing stands between us and this cherished terroir. Manually harvested into wicker baskets and then gently pressed in a 1945 vertical press employing neither lab yeast nor enzyme, neither chaptilization nor acidification. Aged in old oak barrels (5 to 20 years old) and gently racked after malolactic fermentation, Cuvée de l’Abeille is then blended under nitrogen and never fined, filtered or subject to even the smallest addition of SO²...this was ready to approach from 2013 but will evolve through 2030.
