Château de Meursault, Clos des Epenots, Pommard 1er Cru, Burgundy, France, 2017

Clos des Epenots
Platinum - Best in Show: Best in Show
100% Pinot Noir
The intrigue of Pommard, a relatively low-lying village along the Cote d'Or, is based on its combination of fruit style and amplitude given gravitas by its distinctively different soils, with their iron content and wealth of clays. This is often said to result in more tannic wines than would be usual at these altitudes on the hillside. This expansive red Premier Cru Burgundy fits the bill, with its dark colours and the rich, spicy notes in its generous plum-fruit aromas and flavours. It's generous and forthright in the mouth, its taut construction here based as much on vivid raspberry acidity as tannin - though those tannins, finely milled in this instance, provide ample support. Gourmet red Burgundy. Drink 2019-2027
