Laurent Ponsot's five barrels of 2006 Morey-St.-Denis Mont Luisants tasted for a second time this spring after assembly for bottling represent a return to the 100% Aligote that his great grandfather had planted in 1911 an act which Ponsot insists followed a then long-standing tradition of planting that grape in especially chalky and/or nosebleed sectors of the Cote de Nuits. Nectarine apricot fresh lime and iris inform this wine's effusive bouquet and a patisserie-like overlay of yeast and vanilla offers lovely counterpoint; speaking of which a subtly tart fruit skin and citrus zest note I associate with this unjustly maligned grape runs throughout. The interchange of mineral and bright citrus and pit fruit on display here - yet accompanied by a plush texture - is reminiscent of Riesling and there is a depth of flavor and a richness beneath the wine's ripe juicy acidity that promise at least a decade's worth of fascinating further evolution.
