Description

Clos des Epeneaux is one of Pommard's most highly regarded Premier Cru vineyards, located at the base of the Côte d'Or escarpment in the Côte de Beaune region of Burgundy. It is a walled vineyard, nestled between the Grands Epenots and Petits Epenots climats, and like its neighbors it is planted entirely to Pinot Noir. Clos des Epeneaux Premier Cru wines are full bodied and complex with elegant, earthy characters and the ability to age for many years.

Wine novices can often find it hard to reconcile these aspects of "lightness" with the prices at which Pinot Noir wines are usually sold. Lovers of the grape focus on its aromatic, flavor and textural qualities.

The essence of Pinot Noir wine is its aroma of red berries and cherry (fresh red cherries in lighter wines and stewed black cherries in weightier examples). Many of the more complex examples show hints of forest floor. Well-built Pinot Noirs, particularly from warmer harvests, suggest leather and violets, sometimes recalling Syrah.

Tasting note: "The tanins are silky, the fruit pleasant, but the wines often lack a bit of ‘pep’, and as they are quite pleasant already, we don’t really expect here a wine for laying down."
