A superb example of this, Pommard’s most prestigious 1er Cru, packed with deep rich dark wild fruit flavours. This balances a full weighted texture with an air of refinement. The lovely gamey flavours on the finish provide layers of complexity. Fabulous.
Neal Martin, December 2014,
The 2013 Pommard 1er Cru Les Epenots, which comes from two parcels, has a perfumed bouquet with herbal tea, redcurrant and wild strawberry scents that are very well integrated with the new oak. The palate is medium-bodied with tightly-knit tannins on the entry, touches of balsamic infusing the red berry fruit with a hint of spice on the Oriental-influenced finish. Fine, although Jean-Pierre has produced better in recent vintages. Drink: 2016 - 2026
Domaine Joseph Voillot
The Voillots have been winemakers for 5 generations. They produce 17 appellations from 35 parcels in 10 hectares across 4 communes including Pommard and Volnay. Since 1995, Joseph's hearty and jolly son-in-law, Jean-Pierre Charlot, has taken over the domaine. His personality makes it worth the trip alone. Utterly sincere and fantastically funny, we always leave with a smile on our face. Luckily the wines are superb as well - terroir-driven, classically styled and silky - they are hallmarks of top quality Côte de Beaune reds.
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.
