    Brilliant maroon colour, this is luscious and rich, with layers of bramble fruits, Arabian spice, blueberry and mocha. Broad in the palate, with a firm central tannic core and a touch of bitter orange on the finish. It shows attitude and intent.

  • Neal Martin, January 2023, Score: 87-89

    The 2021 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru is a blend of two lieux-dits that were less impacted by the frost than elsewhere. It has a perfumed blackcurrant, cassis and violet-scented bouquet that shows a little more precision than the Village Cru. The palate is medium-bodied with a sappy entry, fine acidity and gentle grip with blue fruit towards its relatively opulent finish. Fine. Drink 2025-2040

  • Matthew Jukes, January 2023, Score: 18

    Comte Armand has bucked the trend in the Côte de Beaune and made it a success in 2021 across its portfolio. With impressive extract and weight, considering the vintage, there is some grip here, but the fruit is more than ripe enough, making it delicious and reasonably priced.

  • Jasper Morris MW, December 2022, Score: 88-89

    12 barrels here, so not so bad. The usual almost purple-black colour of this cuvée offers plenty of energy. Dark berry fruit, with a rather stricter finish, and reasonably prominent acidity. Drink from 2026-2030.

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.Read less

Region

Auxey Duresses

Auxey Duresses is a lesser known appellation of 107 hectares located in the eastern hills above Meursault. Its slightly cooler climate with mostly north facing slopes enable its wines to be particularly crisp, fresh and occasionally austere in less warm vintages. Though three-quarters of its production is white, there are a handful of growers who produce reds. Due to its more modest status, its wines tend to provide excellent value for money . They are well worth seeking out particularly in warmer vintages.
