DESCRIPTION

Burghound 92-94. Sweet Spot. Outstanding.

“This is one of the few wines in the range to exhibit any appreciable amount of wood on the plum liqueur, violet, lilac and earth-suffused nose. The lavishly rich and velvet-textured big-bodied flavors possess focused power and excellent intensity, all wrapped in a palate coating, refreshing and once again hugely long finish. This is very clearly built-to-age yet it's not so imposing that it could not be approached after 6 to 8 years of age. This too is one to consider.” (April, 2017)

 

Vinous Media (Stephen Tanzer) 94

“Bright, dark red with ruby tones. Strong red soil character to the aromas of raspberry, ripe strawberry, mocha and brown spices. Classy, high-toned and penetrating, offering a rare combination of ripeness and acidity (Rossignol compares it to a mix of 2009 and 2008, noting that this wine has higher acidity than the rounder 2016 version). A thick, seamless, silky wine with superb class and sappy lift, this made me think of a ripe vintage of the Clos des Lambrays (!). Finishes with big, dusty, fine-grained tannins and deep, slowly mounting soil and brown spice flavors. A huge wine with a huge future.” (January, 2018)

 

Wine Advocate (Neal Martin) 90-92

“The 2015 Pommard 1er Cru Epenots includes a "touch of stems" according to Nicolas Rossignol. I appreciate the delineation on the nose with blackberry, wild strawberry and subtle undergrowth and woodland scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a candied opening, touches of marmalade and quince piercing the black fruit. There is good depth here, though the new oak (around one-third) will need a couple of years to fully assimilate.” (December, 2016)
