Wine Expert Note:

A powerful and deeply expressive expression of Pinot Noir, the Domaine Ponsot Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Cuvée Vieilles Vignes is a stunning example of Burgundy’s famed terroir. On the nose, it opens with delicate aromas of wild strawberries, cherry, and raspberry, along with subtle hints of rose petal and forest floor. On the palate, it reveals a silky texture, with a firm structure and intense flavors of red and black fruit, underpinned by a core of lively acidity and a hint of spice. The wine finishes with a long, refined finish that lingers with notes of toasted almonds, minerals, and a soft earthy character. Complex, balanced, and full of flavor, this is a stunning expression of Pinot Noir that will continue to develop and improve with further aging. Read more

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
