Several professional reviewers have provided high praise for this vintage, particularly noting its impressive balance and aging potential. Decanter awarded it an outstanding score of 98, highlighting its "lovely deep colour" and "marvellous aromas of ripe cassis." The reviewer emphasizes the wine's "purity of fruit," silky texture, and remarkable power, suggesting it is built to age for decades.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate also rated it highly with a score of 96. William Kelley described it as "full-bodied, fleshy and seamless," with notable aromas of "sweet raspberries and plums mingled with licorice, peony, and cinnamon." Kelley also noted the wine's rich core of fruit, lively acids, and long, saline finish, attributing the precision in winemaking to chief winemaker Alexandre Abel.

Jasper Morris of Inside Burgundy awarded the wine a 95, appreciating its "clear fresh vibrant crimson colour" and its red berry fruits. He noted the wine's "tightly wound" profile with some tannins and a growing sweetness, describing it as "ripe and crunchy at the same time" with a marked acidity.

Vinous, through Neal Martin, gave the wine a score of 94, describing its "very perfumed bouquet of cranberry and boysenberry" and a medium-bodied palate with "slightly grainy tannins." Martin appreciated the subtle balsamic vein and the wine's "appreciable crunchiness and bite," though he mentioned it does not have enormous depth on the finish.

Overall, the 2019 Domaine Ponsot Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes is a well-crafted Pinot Noir with high aging potential and a balanced, complex profile that has garnered excellent reviews from wine critics.
