Domaine Jean-Baptiste Ponsot

Founded in 1954 by his grandfather, the domaine has been in the talented, restless young hands of Jean-Baptiste since 2000. To begin with, a part of the production was sold off to the négoce but such is the demand for these stylish, fruit reds and whites, coupled with Jean Baptiste’s own winemaking ambitions, that this practice has now ceased. Regarded as one of the finest sources of Rully, Ponsot’s wines are a long-standing favourite of ours and come highly recommended. An exciting address to follow.
