(91-93 points) (from a single parcel in Petit Maupertuis, just below Grands-Echézeaux): Saturated dark red with ruby highlights. Slightly medicinal, very reticent nose hints at black cherry, licorice and earth. Very rich, seamless and sweet, conveying an almost a chocolatey quality to its dark cherry, licorice and spice flavors. Finishes rich and long, with serious but sweet building tannins. This wine, too, has close to 14% alcohol. -- Stephen Tanzer

To the best of my recollections, 2004 was the first vintage of Clos de Vougeot from Domaine Ponsot and this has been an excellent addition to their lineup since that time. The vines for this bottling hail from the top section, right next to Grands Echézeaux and are from old vines. The 2016 version is a classic in the making, delivering a refined bouquet of plums, red and black cherries, a great base of soil, gamebird, raw cocoa, just a whisper of mustard seed and plenty of smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and beautifully sappy at the core, with fine-grained tannins, excellent focus and grip and a long, vibrant and very precise young finish.
