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.

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... 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. (Sweet spot outstanding.)

Fresh cherry and rhubarb fresh red meat and blond tobacco scent the 2008 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux; then fill the mouth invigoratingly with a sense of chalk and iron filing suffusion. While firm and bright this conveys a sense of meaty depth and hints of dark chocolate as well as tobacco reinforce the sweet side of its red fruits in a long finish. I would look for this to gain stature over the next 3-5 years and to be worth holding for at least a decade. -DS (91-92+)
