Notes from the Winemaker:

William Ponsot established the Domaine in 1772 after the Prussian war. It was not until after the 19th century, however, that the Domaine began to take its present form under the influence of Jean-Marie's uncle who had 7.4 acres of vineyards but no children. When his nephew, Jean-Marie's father, took over in 1922, the inheritance had become only 2.47 acres. By the time Jean-Marie started working in 1949, land purchases had increased holdings to 14.8 acres. He added 6.4 acres in 1957, located in Morey, Gevrey and Chambolle.

Ratings & Reviews

95-97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Chambertin Clos de Béze Grand Cru has a more approachable bouquet than the 2014 Chambertin; it is more forward and expressive with red cherries, raspberry preserve and orange blossom aromas, which gain intensity and volume with virtually each swirl of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin. I adore the purity here, the sensuality of this Clos-de-Béze that (whisper it) you might mistake for Armand Rousseau. This might well be Laurent Ponsot's finest contribution to the vintage." 2019-2045 - Neal Martin (Dec 2015)

93-95 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"The exuberantly spicy if notably restrained nose grudgingly reveals wisps of mostly various red berries along with hints of underbrush, humus, earth and sandalwood. There is fine density and plenty of punch to the larger-scaled flavors that exhibit outstanding delineation on the relatively refined if quite firmly structured finale. This is tannic and serious yet not hard and the natural elegance of a classic Clos de Bèze is in evidence." 2029+, Don't Miss! - Allen Meadows (Jan 15, 2016)
