Pommard is probably given less attention than other appellations in Burgundy but there's one wine that you definitely should not miss – Domaine du Comte Armand's Clos des Epeneaux - one of the best-kept secrets from connoisseurs around the world. Comte Armand is among the list of top Burgundy domaines and the best in Pommard, and Clos des Epeneaux is their monopole dating back to 1826.
Having taken over from Pascal Marchand (of Marchand-Tawse) since 1998, Benjamin Leroux continued Pascal's fantastic work and even Allen Meadows once praised him saying that he “might be a natural heir of Henri Jayer”. Specifically on their Clos des Epeneaux monopole, Burgundy writer Jasper Morris wrote that “If Pommard can be an elegant wine, then the Clos des Epeneaux is the vineyard to demonstrate it”.

Comte Armand Pommard Clos des Epeneaux 1er Cru Monopole 2009 HK$960 per bottle 94 pts Allen Meadows This is also quite ripe but agreeably fresh with pure aromas of mocha, red currant, cassis, black cherry, warm earth, violets and subtle spice hints. There is good energy to the intense and admirably rich full-bodied flavors that envelope the palate with velvety sap on the beautifully balanced and impressively persistent finish. I very much like the sense of underlying tension because despite this being a big wine with plenty of concentration, the balance is impeccable and there is absolutely nothing ponderous about this complete effort. There is a hint of backend warmth but otherwise, this is really most impressive. Note however that this very firm effort will require plenty of cellar time.

The final blend of the 2003 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux is dark ruby-colored and explodes from the glass with waxy red and black cherries, roasting spices, and toasted oak. Medium to full-bodied, it is crammed with superb flavors of red fruits (cherries and raspberries), dark berries (boysenberries, black cherries, cassis), licorice, and tar. Dense, velvety-textured, and fresh, it exhibits a persistent, structured, ripe tannin filled finish. Projected maturity: 2010-2020+.
