Le Grand Clos des Epenots is a monopoly of the Domaine. The plot of 4.89 hectares of land is located north of Pommard, at the start of the slope and is east facing. The soil, which is rich in clay and limestone, is brown and strewn with limestone rocks. The depth of the soil is around 40-60cm and its structure acts as a natural filter. The vines are ~60 years old and produce wines with aromas of red berries and also ripe white fruits such as peaches or apricots. The fine tannins are numerous and blend in nicely with the smoothness and the aromas.

Rich and dense, with pure black cherry and spice flavors. A bit rigid now, with plenty of buried fruit. Finishes with edgy tannins and good length. Best from 2016 through 2026. 250 cases imported.

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Pommard 1er Cru Grand Clos des Epenots '11 has a nicely controlled bouquet with bright, vivacious brambly red fruit, quite stemmy with fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with good weight, although the wood tannins are a little obtrusive at the moment. This will need a couple more years to coalesce and I do hope that the oak is fully assimilated over the next few months. Fingers crossed.
