Comte Armand, Domaine des Epeneaux

Continuing the path towards elegance begun by his predecessor, Benjamin Leroux, viticulturist and winemaker Paul Zinetti is further refining the wine, making it even silkier from tiny yields of just 35hl/ha and very little extraction in the vats. It is this gentle winemaking which, combined with global warming, has sweetened Pommard’s tannins. No longer is Pommard a rough bruiser. It is now a wine of great finesse. The harvest started here on the 3rd September.

Comte Armand, Pommard Premier Cru Clos des Epeneaux 2017

Paul Zinetti showed me the elements that will make up the final blend: the ‘young vines’ cuvée (from 35-year old vines) showed perfume and freshness while the old-vine cuvée (65–95-year-old vines) had more density and breadth. The blend of these elements (100% destemmed and with 35% new oak) will be excellent. Drink from 2027 to 2038. 13.5%
