2017 Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux, Comte Armand

Along with Rugiens, this is held as the finest site in Pommard, and is, some argue, of Grand Cru quality. The monopole walled vineyard lies on the Beaune side of the village, and consistently produces one of the most elegant expressions of Pommard from the low-yielding old vines (35-98 years). 2017 is a highlight in a string of superb wines made by Paul Zinetti since 2014. Powerful, fragrant, with a beautiful density married to silky freshness. This has the structure and concentration to age for many years.

2017 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.
