The 2019 vintage is as stylistically generous on the Cote de Beaune as it is on the Cote de Nuits, so the chance to compare this outstanding Premier Cru Clos des Epenots Pommard with its Vosne-Romanee Malconsorts peer was a treat for our judges. The aromas of the Clos des Epenots are very different to those of the Vosne. This wine’s red and black fruits are earth-sprinkled and sand-sweetened, and there are violet notes here too, plus a little subtle spice. On the palate, the wine is deep, firm, structured and authoritative; that spice seeps into the tannins, and that earthiness is back in the finish of this ample, almost savoury red burgundy. Another wine for the cellar for fortunate purchasers.
