This is also very fresh and bright with pure aromas of ripe red currant warm earth violets and subtle spice hints that are in keeping with the energetic intense and admirably rich full-bodied flavors that envelope the palate with velvety sap on the beautifully balanced and impressively persistent finish. I very much like the sense of underlying tension because despite this being a big wine with plenty of concentration the balance is impeccable and there is absolutely nothing ponderous about this complete effort that is well-structured but not so much so that it is in the "buy and forget" category. In short buy it.

The 2009 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux possesses breathtaking aromatics beautifully delineated fruit and intense focus. It remains a mid-weight mineral driven wine yet with time in the glass the layers of fruit fill out with notable breadth and sheer intensity. All of the elements flow together nicely through to the vivid multi-dimensional finish. Today the 2009 Clos des Epeneaux comes across as one of the more reticent wines of the vintage. I tasted the wine from barrel where it had been since finishing its alcoholic fermentation with no rackings in between. This is a superb Clos des Epeneaux. In 2009 yields were 41 hectoliters per hectare low by this house's historical standards. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039. -Antonio Galloni

Slightly reduced aromas of dark cherry spices licorice and stone. Complex ripe and smooth; seamless and velvety but not at all heavy. The flavors of dark cherry chocolate and spices carry through on the very long perfumed finish which features ripe tannins in perfect balance with the wine's mid-palate texture. This will be accessible early but should easily age for 10 or 15 years. Leroux destemmed the Clos completely as he doesn't like vendange entier "for structured terroirs."
