Comte Armand Pommard Clos des Epeneaux 2014
The family of the Comte Armand has owned the vineyard of Clos des Epéneaux and the winery buildings in Pommard since 1826 when Jean-François Armand married Clothilde Marey. It is rated as one of Pommard’s very finest sites. Pascal Marchand, a young Quebecois from the merchant marine, made the wines here from the 1985 to 1998 vintages inclusive. During his time in charge he completely transformed the domaine, elevating its ranking to that of the greatest estate in Pommard.
Jancis Robinson: "Bright crimson. Very sweet fruit and more than a trace of oak but very ambitious and lots of layers here. Lots of crunch. Very clean and dramatic. Fine with a deep undertow. 17.5/20 Points"
