  • Goedhuis, August 2016

    Clos des Epenots is without doubt Pommard’s most refined 1er Cru. Like many 2008s, it was initially a little backward, but with age has shed its chrysalis to become a wine of exquisite finesse. Beautifully scented with succulent wild berry aromas. This is a wine entering its long drinking window and is a lovely example of the domaine’s quality.

  • Goedhuis, March 2013

    The natural charm the vineyard aspires to is again clear here, with lovely open sweet dark berry fruit flavours. This is slightly more intense and powerful than the 2007 vintage, with more structured tannic content. A wine of real depth and complexity. The sweet secondary fruit flavours make it very approachable now and it has the ability to develop even further in bottle.

Producer

Domaine de Courcel

De Courcel is one of the Côte de Beaune’s grandest estates, having been in the ownership pf the de Courcel family since the late 17th century. The estate is skilfully managed by Yves Confuron from Vosne Romanée. He prefers to pick late, allowing him to vinify with whole bunches and age his wines a little longer in cask before bottling, which he feels provides an added layer of texture to the wines.

Region

Pommard

A long popular appellation, Pommard is yet another exclusive red wine area which produces by far the most structured reds of the Côte de Beaune. It extracts rich body and long ageing potential from the limestone/iron-rich clay soil. Some examples can be markedly rustic, yet as time has passed and winemaking know-how has improved, Pommard's wines are becoming softer and more approachable when young. Its vines cover 317 hectares of which over a third are premier cru vineyards. Several have pronounced following and even one, Les Rugiens, is being pushed to become a grand cru.
