En Primeur | Domaine Comte Armand

The 5.23-hectare monopole of Clos des Épeneaux has been in the Comte Armand family since 1828 and, as Pommard’s most celebrated vineyard, it arguably just missed out on Grand Cru status. In the extremely capable hands of Paul Zanetti this domaine is now fully biodynamic in its vineyard management and winemaking practices. Over the past 25 years the family have carefully expanded their vineyard holdings in the locality. Today they make a wonderful representation of the Côte de Beaune, including vineyards in Volnay and the much-overlooked village of Auxey Duresses which, thanks in part to Paul’s efforts, is rapidly gaining credibility as a rising star in the southern Côte d’Or.

2020 represents a half crop for the Clos in comparison to normal years. The fruit that did arrive at the winery was incredibly healthy according to Paul and the small berries were a key factor in the quality of the vintage. They required maximum protection to avoid excessive ripeness, so Paul chose not de-leaf during the summer to encourage the vine canopy to act as a sun shield and slow down the vine’s development. In addition, Paul took the decision to de-stalk as much as 95% of the bunches this year to preserve both freshness and purity. As ever this domaine portrays a pinnacle of quality for the appellations it represents.
