One of the most iconic producers in the Côte de Beaune, Comte Armand's holdings include some of the greatest vineyards of Pommard and Volnay, as well as a wealth of enviable plots across the region. They have become well-reputed as a source of long-lived wines of the highest pedigree as well as a producer of excellent value wines from Auxey-Duresses and entry-level offerings from Bourgogne. The domaine's history dates back to 1826, making it a stalwart of the region and one of Burgundy's essential producers for almost 200 years.
"Initially there is enough reduction present to remark upon but it slowly gives way to the still super-fresh and very primary aromas of various red berries, spice and discreet floral nuances. There is both fine richness and density to the vibrant full-bodied flavors that possess a really lovely mouth feel thanks to the abundance of dry extract, all wrapped in gorgeously persistent and well-balanced finale. This is very much built-to-age and is clearly going to need it but it should be wonderful when it finally reaches its apogee." - Burghound.com, 94 points
