The Clos des Epeneaux from Comte Armand is a classic Pommard – made from a 5 ha clos locaded in the climates Petit Epenots (80%) and Grands Epenots (20%). The nose offer layers of pure red and dark berry fruit – notes of cherries, red currant and blue berries – infused with a deep earthy minerality. On the palate tight with layers of fruit, finely grained tannins – very good power and weight. Perhaps not quite at the same level as the 2010 … but this is more forward and show more energy and nerve currently. Build for cellaring – a classic Pommard.
