Since 1872 in Morey St Denis

Five generations of winegrowers at the heart of the Grands Crus of the Côte de Nuits

P h i l o s o p h y

As transmitters of memories and creators of emotions, our vocation is to continue to serve our beautiful terroir and interpret it in the best possible way, as generations before us have done and as generations after us will continue to do. We want you to enjoy a unique experience of communion with this land and the people who made what you taste in your glass possible

"Like music, wine, through the scores of the Climats in Burgundy, offers itself to the interpretation of Domaine Ponsot to thrill us: we touch the soul! Perhaps that's what art is all about... and the artist."

Eric Goettelmann

Cuvée vieilles vignes

Clos de la Roche

The historic and emblematic wine of Domaine Ponsot – the grapes come from old vines located 2/3 in the original “Clos de la Roche” climat and 1/3 at the foot of the hillside in the “Clos des Monts-Luisants”. Grand Cru Clos de la Roche combines power and elegance. Complex and perfectly balanced, it is a great wine for laying down, structured, with extremely silky tannins.

Chapelle Chambertin

This Gevrey-Chambertin Grand Cru is surprisingly elegant and long on the palate. Perfectly balanced vines of around forty years old produce a wine of great class, with a delicate nose and fine tannins. The whole is very harmonious, with a long, mineral finish.

Clos des Monts-Luisants
Domaine Ponsot’s historic second wine, first bottled on the estate in the early 1920s, is unique in Burgundy on several counts. A rare white Premier Cru from the Côte de Nuit, more than 2/3 of which comes from very old vines planted in 1911, it is also the only one produced with the Aligoté grape variety.

Cuvée des Alouettes
Located in the heart of the “Clos des Monts-Luisants”, the vines are separated from the Clos de la Roche by just one metre! It shares many characteristics with its illustrious neighbour, boasting great aromatic complexity and a structured, well-balanced palate. The finish, with its slightly firmer tannins and refreshing acidity, is the main difference to the Grand Cru.


The atypical position of the vines at the top of the “Monts-Luisants” hillside, bordered by the forest, gives Morey Saint Denis “Cuvée des Grives” a great deal of freshness and tension. Sustained and structured, it strikes just the right balance between full body, fruit expression, velvety texture and minerality.


Gevrey-Chambertin “Cuvée de l’Abeille” comes from vines replanted in 2014 in the locality known as “Les Epointures”, and already displays all the characteristics of its appellation: a ruby colour with purple highlights, an intense nose of cherry, blackberry, violet and rose, and a full, structured palate with velvety tannins.


Since 2017, this wine has often been one of Domaine Ponsot’s smallest cuvées in volume. There is a reason for this: it is produced with young vines from our Morey Saint Denis or Gevrey-Chambertin appellations that reclassify into the lower Bourgogne appellation.

For us winegrowers, the vine is the focus of all our attention.

We spend hours with each vine to produce beautiful grapes.
