The 2008 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux is far superior to the 2005. It is relatively backward on the nose, but it has startling delineation with open, natural red-berry fruit – predominantly freshly picked strawberries, raspberry and pomegranate. With continued aeration it offers a cheeky hint of white chocolate. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannins. This is very harmonious and feminine with a silky texture that lends it a Vosne-like finish. What a lovely 2008! Drink now-2022+ - Neal Martin

Medium red a bit less saturated than the Volnay. Sexy pure aromas of cherry raspberry and flowers. Tangy and energetic but supple with perfectly integrated acidity intensifying the cherry menthol and mineral flavors. ... Medium red a bit less saturated than the Volnay. Sexy pure aromas of cherry raspberry and flowers. Tangy and energetic but supple with perfectly integrated acidity intensifying the cherry menthol and mineral flavors. This very broad wine coats the cheeks without leaving any impression of weight. Finishes juicy subtle and very long with a classical dryness. A very classy Pommard and still a baby. Leroux pointed out that he did a stricter sorting of this holding in 2009 than in 2008 as there were more underripe berries in the later year. Quite splendid for the vintage.

(BH90-93 points) Extremely subtle wood frames more complex and more densely fruited earthy and fresh red pinot plum and currant aromas that slide gracefully into detailed intense and big-bodied flavors that possess plenty... (BH90-93 points) Extremely subtle wood frames more complex and more densely fruited earthy and fresh red pinot plum and currant aromas that slide gracefully into detailed intense and big-bodied flavors that possess plenty of dry extract which does its job of buffering the firm tannic spine on the detailed balanced and strikingly long finish. This appears to have excellent aging potential.
