Pommard Clos des Epeneaux, Domaine Comte Armand 2002
Like the 2001, this too has not really budged since it was initially reviewed from bottle. The extract of black cherry nose that reflects notes of both earth and limestone is classy, elegant, ripe and forceful with sappy, gorgeously intense, very fresh and concentrated flavors of immense depth and reserve. The finish is very pinot in character and while there is plenty of structure, it is sophisticated and relatively fine. While I slightly prefer the '01 version, this is stylistic rather than qualitative preference as it's clear that the '02 is a great young Clos des Epeneaux as it too is blessed with enormous potential.
