Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    A masterclass in Aligoté. Appealing bright fresh melon aromas roll into an attractive layer of soft tropical fruit as a result of fermentation and élevage split equally between oak and tank. This often overlooked grape variety should not be underestimated, it is far too good to have a dollop of crème de cassis added!

    A mildly exotic and ripe nose is comprised by hints of white peach, melon, apple and soft citrus scents. The nicely voluminous flavors possess very good vibrancy and good detail on the softly austere and agreeably dry finale. This offers fine quality for its level and is worth checking out. Drink 2021+ Outstanding Top value

  • JAM

    Jasper Morris MW, January 2020,
    Score: 86

    The wine is made from a mix of the domaine’s own Aligoté d’oré vines below Meursault (planted in 2008 and 2012) plus purchased grapes from 90+ year old vines in the same vicinity. Vinification is in a mix of large wood and tank. The wine shows very good intensity for Aligoté while maintaining a classy lively freshness. Very good fruit with impressive length.

Producer

Comte Armand

Clos des Épeneaux is Pommard’s most celebrated climat. The 5.23 hectare monopole has been in the Comte Armand family since 1828. Paul Zinetti took over from Benjamin Leroux as régisseur in 2014, and is rising to every challenge at this small, characterful domaine. They also have small holdings in Volnay and Auxey Duresses and, while these wines have the distinctive character of quintessential Côte de Beaune, they are also some of the most sophisticated, nuanced expressions you might taste across these villages. An understated use of new oak matches the textured fruit, and gentle handling in combination with intuitive biodynamic practices afford these wines both strength and delicacy. The domaine has begun to noticeably outpace its neighbours and redefine how the finest terroir of Pommard is capable of not only power but elegance as well.

Region

Bourgogne Aligoté

Regional appellation for white wines made exclusively from the Aligote grape. Unlike Chardonnay these are best drunk young, with fresh notes of green apple and citrus fruit. The best wines tend to come from the Cote Chalonnaise around Bouzeron. This is the classic wine used in making Kir with Creme de Cassis from up the road in Dijon.
