The 2016 is a terrific example with the supple texture of old-vine fruit, framed by racy acidity and mineral energy. Expect lifted notes of citrus peel and florals, a pure, pithy palate suggesting grapefruit and lemon pith, with serious intensity and length. It’s one of the best young renditions of this iconic wine we have tasted. It was crushed and pressed in Ponsot’s vertical press and then aged in neutral barrels (all between 10-60 years old).
It’s been a few years since Clive Coates wrote the following, and while the price has risen, I think that this still captures well the spirit of this important wine: There is a brilliant complexity and delicacy about today’s Clos des Monts Luisants. It is delicious and it really is unique. And yet it is not prohibitively expensive.
