Blessed with a positively brilliant nose that is a beguiling mix of still primary though mostly secondary fruit, earth, spice and a hint of animale aromas that introduce rich, full and naturally sweet big-bodied flavors...

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Pommard, Clos Des Epeneaux

Clos des Epeneaux is a 12.5-acre Premier Cru vineyard in Pommard, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. It is in the central part of the Pommard appellation, to the east of the village, and it is a monopole of Comte Armand. Clive Coates has written that “the monopoly of the Comte Armand today produces some of the best wines in Burgundy.” Because Pommard has no Grand Crus, its Premier Crus are especially noteworthy. Pommard is an appellation of red wine only.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
