Jean-Baptiste Ponsot farms a total 8.5 hectares in the Rully AOP with a deep respect for the land that his family has been fostering for three generations. He employs organic practices but hasn’t sought out certification, preferring instead to prioritize the intrinsic health of the ecosystem and his vines. Domaine Ponsot’s holdings cover parts of three Rully premiers crus in Burgundy: Molesme, Montpalais, and La Fosse. In addition to the 1re cru parcels, Ponsot farms 2.83 hectares in the “En Bas de Vauvry” Monopole as well as another 0.46 ha in “Rully Village” vineyards.

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
