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.
"The 2017 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux 1er Cru offers attractive red berry fruit, undergrowth and tea leaf aromas that are very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannins, fresh acidity, classic in style with a plenty of blood orange and zesty notes, a touch of sous-bois towards the finish. "Old school" after tasting the 2018, 2019 and 2020, but I really admire this, perhaps more than the '18'." - Vinous, 94 points
"The 2017 Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux has gained in depth and dimension with \u00e9levage and showed very well from bottle, unfurling in the glass with an expressive, youthfully fruit-driven bouquet of raspberries, cherries, candied peel and rose petals, framed by a subtle touch of new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and fleshy, with succulent acids and elegant tannins. While this isn't as rich, muscular or gourmand as the 2018, it's an immensely seductive wine that will drink well comparatively young - though readers should still plan on exercising at least a decade's patience." - RP, 94 points
