Shy aromas of redcurrant, plum and spicy underbrush are less pristine than those of the young 2012. Supple and energetic, with dark cherry, raspberry and soil tones accented by minerals and peppery herbs. Nicely perfumed and savory wine with a restrained sweetness and very good verve. The dusty tannins should support mid-term aging. Winemaker Benjamin Leroux told me in November that this wine shut down hard after bottling but was starting to come back. The crop level here was about 32 hectoliters per hectare following some sorting.

This is really quite expressive for a young Clos des Epeneaux with its relatively refined and pure nose of red currant, dried flowers, iron-inflected earth and soft spice scents. There is good power and plenty of punch to the broad-shouldered and muscular medium-bodied flavors that are shaped by relatively fine-grained tannins on the perfectly balanced and highly persistent finish that displays moderate austerity. This is really very impressive and will need at least 10 to 12 years to be at its best. Outstanding ♥

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux offers a pleasant marine influence on the nose with touches of iodine and seaweed infusing the dark black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm but not austere tannins. There is good density here, the best balanced Pommard of the flight, the finish showing fine delineation, structure and typicity. This the most complete wine of the flight, although winemaker Benjamin Leroux crafted a superior wine in 2012. - Neal Martin
