It was in 1954 that Lucien Ponsot created the family estate in Rully. Fascinated by the vine, he decided to make a place for it on his farm. In 2000, at just 20 years old, Jean-Baptiste took over from his father, Bernard, and created the Domaine Jean-Baptiste Ponsot. From then on, he will be able to proudly express his love for the wines of Burgundy. As soon as he arrived, he planted vines on the domain's land that was still unexploited. The modernization of the work tool is very important to him, so he builds a new vat house and a cellar in 2005.
Geographical location of the Domaine Jean-Baptiste Ponsot
The eight and a half hectares of Domaine Jean-Baptiste Ponsot are located on the best slopes of the Rully appellation. Two-thirds of the estate's vines are in the Premier Cru appellation. Vintage after vintage, Jean-Baptiste Ponsot has never stopped improving his estate. Since 2007, he has been practicing integrated vineyard management, without pesticides or herbicides. His approach is imbued with respect for the characteristics of each parcel and the typology of the soil.
