Tasting Notes

Pale gold on the eyes. On the nose, flinty with hints of hazelnut. Crispy with great minerality. Lingering finish with a balanced acidity.

Ratings

Cellar Tracker 86 pts - Pale/medium(-) ruby color, medium(-) intensity nose of mostly red fruit (cherry, raspberry) and a hint of floral notes (violet). Very youthful, with not much in the way of secondary or tertiary aromas.
The palate is more a bit more pronounced than the nose, it's light bodied, but well balanced, with a nice lingering finish. 

About the Winery

The Ponnelle family’s involvement with Burgundy’s wine trade began in 1870. This is when our ancestor, Pierre-Lazare Ponnelle, founded his winery and domaine of vineyards. He developed the business brilliantly at the same time conducting a number of research projects into wine-making processes, in particular the understanding of fermentation. This led to collaborating with Louis Pasteur, who was living in Dôle, not far from Beaune, the wine capital of Burgundy.
