A touch of youthful reduction dissipates as the 2018 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru Cuvée des Alouettes opens in the glass, revealing aromas of rich berry fruits, smoked meats, spices and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, layered and fleshy, it's bright and lively, with an elegantly muscular core of fruit that largely conceals the wine's fine structuring tannins. Drink:2025~2050 - WA92

Here the expressive nose offers up a pretty array of violet, pomegranate and red cherry liqueur trimmed in very subtle hints of earth and volatile acidity. There is again very good richness to the more finely detailed and vibrant middle weight flavors that possess better complexity and length on the similarly rustic finish. While not technically perfect, this is still very good, and I especially like the focused power. - BH91

The Winery

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.
