Tasting Notes

**Note: the 5+ ha Clos is composed of approximately 80% Petits Epenots and 20% Grands Epenots; the vine ages run from 18 to 75+ years of age**
There is the barest whisper of wood setting off the cool, pure and airy mix of red and dark currant, violet, earth and tea scents. There is a lovely sense of energy to the tight and precise middle weight flavors that are not as dense as the 8 hl/ha yield would suggest. The linear, moderately structured and austere finish is balanced but not generous and it will be interesting to see if the overall mouth feel fleshes out with time in bottle. Note that I doubt that this will drink especially well young so patience will be required.

Score: 89/91Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (58), April 2015

The 2013 Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux has a fragrant bouquet once it loses it inhibitions and wafts from the glass: freshly crushed strawberry, red cherries, granite and just a suggestion of camphor that may or may not be there once in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with a well-balanced, slightly savory entry, plenty of crunchy red berry fruit interlaced with mocha and mushroom scents. It is not the most powerful Clos des Epeneaux, but it is well crafted and feels persistent in the mouth. Drink this over the next 10-15 years.
