Chapelle Chambertin

Domaine Ponsot is a wine producer in Burgundy, France that produces white and red wine. They are best known for their Morey St.Denis Blanc 1er cru Clos des Monts Luisants — the only premier cru Burgundy made entirely from Aligoté — and their flagship reds, the Clos de la Roche Cuvée Vieilles Vignes, and the Clos St. Denis Cuvée Très Vieilles Vignes.

As of 2008 (the last year for which records are available), Domaine Ponsot has produced wine from 10 vineyards. The domaine grows wine with a serious nod to biodynamic processes, using no fertilizer, pesticides, or weed killer, although the domaine makes no claim to being organic or biodynamic. At harvest time (Domaine Ponsot is one of the last producers to pick grapes in the Côte de Nuits.), the grapes are selected in the vineyard (the domaine does not use a sorting table), picked into wicker baskets, generally not having been destemmed, for crushing on the winery's 1945-era vertical press.

After pressing, the wine is gravity-fed to oak, computer-temperature-controlled, fermenting tanks, where fermentation takes 10 to 20 days. Pigeage is done three times daily. From there, the wine is gravity-fed down to the barrel cellar. It is aged up to 30 months in barrels that are a minimum of 5 years old, before bottling occurs during a time when there is both a waning moon and a north wind. There is no use of sulfites, instead the wine is kept under a blanket of nitrogen during racking and bottling to protect it from oxidation. The labels of the domaine have a white spot that will turn grey if the ink in them is subjected to extreme temperatures, thus indicating that the wine may be damaged.
