Situated in the centre of the Pommard appellation, at the foot of the slopes, this famous clos is cultivated using biodynamics since 1988. The cuvée commercialised under the "Clos de Epeneaux" label comes exclusively from parcels with vines of at least 20 years old; the grapes coming from more recent vinestock are "downgraded" and used for the domain's cuvée Pommard Village. A rigorous selection produces a deep and distinctive wine, two qualities that are highly appreciated by connoisseurs, as well as its beautiful structure. Very tannic as a young wine, it is nonetheless a generous and ample wine with a finesse that is rare at Pommard. Not to mention its impressive procession of aromas that unfold in the mouth: candied red fruits, plums, violet, old rose, leather and mild spices.
Domaine du Comte Armand, also known as Domaine des Epeneaux, has enjoyed a good reputation for a long time but it has increased its recognition since the arrival of Benjamin Leroux who has steered the wines towards more refinement and elegance. However, the different cuvées have kept one of the characteristic features of this area which is to produce powerful and rich wines. The cuvée of Clos des Epeneaux is particularly renowned and all the wines of Domaine Comte Armand are today considered a reference point in Burgundy. The domaine is now run organically.
