2011 Pommard 1er Cru, Comte Armand

Benjamin Leroux bottles the fruit from his younger vines (less than 30 years old) from Clos des Epeneaux under this Pommard 1er Cru label and, while it is a lighter and more approachable style than its bigger sibling, the breed of the vineyard (arguably one of two in the commune where promotion to Grand Cru could be justified) shows in the precision of the soft, crunchy and deliciously fresh fruit. Benjamin's touch is present in the soft and elegant tannins. An excellent Pommard 1er Cru.

2011 Pommard 1er Cru, 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.
