Domaine Ponsot Gevrey Chambertin Cuvee de l'Abeille 2012
In the first flush of youth they have a lively ruby colour, which gradually turns to a dark carmine, reminiscent of black cherries. Strawberries, blackberries, violets, reseda and roses are present in the bouquet when the wine is young, which over time evolves scents of liquorice, leather and fur, with notes of game and undergrowth. The palate offers the expression of a great Burgundy. Generous, powerful, rich, full of body and spirit, the wines present a firm structure, with delightful velvety tannins, supported by a very finely grained texture, with no hardness. Pleasant to drink when young and fruity, this is however a wine that should be kept for some years, frequently presenting an exceptional capacity to age, and serving as an excellent showcase for the vintages.
