Domaine du Comte Armand En Primeur 2019

The jewel of Domaine du Comte Armand is the Clos des Epeneaux, a walled premier cru monopole in Pommard of 5.3ha. The domaine has had a line-up of prestigious winemakers, Paul Zinetti following Benjamin Leroux and before him,
Pascal Marchand.

The domaine is fully biodynamic and produces elegant and long lasting wines. In the last decade, the domaine has purchased vineyards in Volnay and Auxey-Duresses, where Paul makes some of the finest examples of these appellations.

BOURGOGNE ALIGOTE

Attractive from the colour, champagne gold if allowed to say so, it is a lively wine evocative of citrus and orchard fruits. Fine acidity balanced by the ripeness, it drinks easily. Juicy pear taste with the freshness of the green apple, it is not a one dimension and simple wine. This is the kind of aligoté which show the potential of the grape. A good buy to drink as soon as possible and see how it ages.

AUXEY-DURESSES

Auxey is a good village to find a medium bodied Pinot Noir with all the characteristics of an elegant and ethereal red Burgundy and ageing potential. Bordering St Romain to the west and Meursault/Monthelie to the east, it benefits of a cooler climate and higher altitude. Red fruited and sharp on the nose, it is chewy and ripe on the palate. There is a hint of leather and earth. The tannins are elegant and the finish long enough. Don’t walk away because it only has 9 premier cru sites!

VOLNAY

Floral, medium bodied, smoky, and ripe are the first impression. Then the wine opens and its about juiciness, red berries, with a good weight and tight structure. It is rather powerful for Volnay yet very ripe and round. Unusual and pleasant.

VOLNAY FREMIETS 1ER CRU

I liked a lot this wine. It has an inner power that you don’t suspect from the pale ruby colour of the appearance and the ethereal nose. Floral notes, small berry aromas and citrus dominate first. Then the sharpness of the wine comes out, with a marked tension, a soft but persistent finish. Fremiets soil is quite shallow making wines lean yet complex, a mid-distance runner instead of a sprinter. Lots of appeal.

POMMARD CLOS DES EPENEAUX 1ER CRU

This is the flagship wine of the domaine, made in a very detailed way. Its complexity is immediately apparent and is clearly a wine built to last. Citrus first, followed by aromas of red cherry that are somewhat atypical of Pommard. The palate displays beautiful floral notes that combine nicely with an intense minerality, expertly tempered by ripe fruit. The tannins are polished, round, even opulent, but never out of balance. The more time the wine has in the glass the more it slowly reveals layer upon layer of interest and nuance. A Grand Cru in all but name. Wonderful.

POMMARD CLOS DES EPENEAUX 1ER CRU 2019

This is the flag bearer of the domaine, made in a very detailed way. From the onset you know it is a complex wine, built to last. Citrus first then red fruits on the nose. The floral notes come out slowly with the minerality tempered by the ripeness. The tannins are soft, round, red roses aromas and red cherry makes you wonder if it is really a Pommard. It is rich, polished with opulent tannins and flesh but never out of balance. It has several layers revealing themselves as the wine open. It is a grand cru in all but the classification.
