Description

The village of Pommard is comfortably sandwiched between the town of Beaune and the village of Volnay. In contrast to the wines of its close neighbours, those of Pommard tend to be fuller, more tannic and expansive in the mouth, similar to those of the Cote de Nuits. This area was named 'Epenots', coming from 'epine' (thorn or prickle), as a result of the natural vegetation of the area which was bush-like and thorny. The << Epenots >> is solid and firm in its youth and needs time to mature and mellow out before revealing its full glory.
