Made from the ‘young’ vines of Clos des Epeneaux, now averaging 25 years old, this Pommard from Domaine du Comte Armand, which is bounding with energy, is remarkably succulent with totally tamed tannins. THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating: 90 points - Drink Date: 2015 - 2025 - "The 2005 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux is a rather controversial wine. Benjamin Leroux was not as enthused by the vintage as others. “We went for more extraction to see how far we could go,” he rued, “It is not a wine that I hate. But it is not a wine that I love.” I concur. It has a youthful nose of quite powerful, almost burly black fruit laced with iodine and dried petals, that is nicely focused. The palate is full-bodied and sinewy, with layers of spicy red and black fruit and a dash of white pepper and cloves. Though it offers impressive dimension, it is exactly that – more impressive than pleasurable, and there is a distinct lack of finesse and terroir expression toward the finish. A Clos des Epeneaux showing off?" - Neal Martin (Aug 2013)
