2017 Pommard, Clos des Epeneaux, Comte Armand

Côte de Beaune, 1er cru

$195.00 per Bottle


30 Bottles




"The 2017 Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux has gained in depth and dimension with élevage and showed very well from bottle, unfurling in the glass with an expressive, youthfully fruit-driven bouquet of raspberries, cherries, candied peel and rose petals, framed by a subtle touch of new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and fleshy, with succulent acids and elegant tannins. While this isn't as rich, muscular or gourmand as the 2018, it's an immensely seductive wine that will drink well comparatively young—though readers should still plan on exercising at least a decade's patience."

"There is just enough wood present to merit mentioning as it frames the much earthier and slightly riper blend of both red and dark currant scents that are cut with leather and underbrush nuances. The supple medium-bodied flavors possess reasonable though not excellent mid-palate concentration before terminating in a velvety and lingering finish that exhibits focused power. The supporting tannins are sufficiently firm that this youthfully austere effort will need a decade plus of cellar time before it arrives at its apogee." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 78

"Pale garnet. Light nose. Quite deceptive. Doesn’t shout! It’s all buried underneath and on the finish. Seeps up. Very appetising but not at all showy." JancisRobinson.com
