Pommard 1er Cru "Les Epenots"
Côte de Beaune
AOC Premier Cru
Pommard has a terroir well suited for red wines. Its wines are among Burgundy’s most robust and tannic. They are more powerful than wines from neighbouring Beaune and Volnay. The "Epenots" vineyard is located just next to the Beaune appellation. It is one of the most famous Premier Crus in the village and tends to open up more quickly than "Les Rugiens", which is located to the south.
The nose is fine, round and generous, with well-integrated aromas of cherry, strawberry, and plum along with subtle, delicate notes of spice. Full-flavoured, revealing nuances of cinnamon and oak on the palate, light in texture.
Serve with finely cooked red meat dishes, feathered game, dishes in red wine sauce, even slightly spicy dishes. Pairs well with classic cheeses.
