Domaine des Epeneaux Comte Armand has the honor of producing one of Burgundy's most powerful and tannic red wines and the Pommard Clos des Epeneaux lives up to the reputation. This stuctured red wine is heavy and deep but complemented with great tenderness and finesse.
Burghound (BH): 90-93
"Extremely subtle wood frames more complex and more densely fruited earthy and fresh red pinot, plum and currant aromas that slide gracefully into detailed, intense and big-bodied flavors that possess plenty of dry extract which does its job of buffering the firm tannic spine on the detailed, balanced and strikingly long finish. This appears to have excellent aging potential."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 93
"Medium red... Sexy, pure aromas of cherry, raspberry and flowers. Tangy and energetic but supple, with perfectly integrated acidity intensifying the cherry, menthol and mineral flavors. This very broad wine coats the cheeks without leaving any impression of weight. Finishes juicy, subtle and very long, with a classical dryness. A very classy Pommard and still a baby...Quite splendid for the vintage"
