2008 Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux, Comte Armand

Arguably the Grand Cru of Pommard, with tremendously old vine fruit incorporated in the blend. Deep, dark fruit, with notes of cassis, damson, spice and pepper all allied to a stony, earthy minerality.This is intense and powerful, with evident tannic backbone, but so silkily-expressed. Nothing harsh at all – taut, elegant Pommard with a fine vibrant fruit and effortless length. Impeccable.

2008 Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux, Comte Armand
Domaine Comte Armand

With the Clos des Epeneaux in the hands of the Comte Armand since 1826, this estate celebrates a rich and successful history. 2014 was young Beaune native Paul Zinetti’s first vintage at the helm of the estate, and in the years to come he’s certain to grow in renown and stature. Here is a winemaker with a golden touch and high aspirations, not least to see the Epeneaux climat awarded grand cru classification. We look forward to seeing how the wines of Comte Armand develop.
