1999 - Comte Armand, Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux
- Cote de Beaune
- 92 NM
Benjamin Leroux urged me not to depart his cellar so hastily, at least not before trying this unique wine, basically the 1999 Clos des Epeneaux that was bottled with minimum sulfur - a bit of horseplay on Benjamin-s part. It has a wonderful bouquet with undergrowth, Provencal herbs, mint, juniper and sage that swarm upon pouring. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline entry and instantly builds in the mouth. The acidity is very poised, with hints of kirsch and Moroccan spices furnishing the ebullient, convincing finish. Excellent!
