Buy Domaine Madame de Courcel Pommard Grand Clos des Epenots Premier Cru
Vinous 93 points - Good bright full red. Deep, nuanced aromas of red berries, spices and underbrush. Rich, vinous and deep, with sweet redcurrant fruit lifted by peppery spices. Shows terrific vivacity and precision in spite of its modest acidity (the pH here is 3.7, according to winemaker Yves Confuron), no doubt due to the whole-cluster fermentation. This generous, sensual wine finishes with fine but seriously gripping tannins. 93+ Points (Mar 2013)

Le Grand Clos des Epenots is a monopoly of the Domaine. The plot of 4.89 hectares of land is located north of Pommard, at the start of the slope and is east facing. The soil, which is rich in clay and limestone, is brown and strewn with limestone rocks. The depth of the soil is around 40-60cm and its structure acts as a natural filter. The vines are ~60 years old and produce wines with aromas of red berries and also ripe white fruits such as peaches or apricots. The fine tannins are numerous and blend in nicely with the smoothness and the aromas.
Producer
The Domaine de Courcel is a 400 year old family owned winery, located in the village of Pommard on the Cote d’Or. Its current owners, three sisters and one brother, are the descendants of the founders. The estate is managed by Anne Bommelaer and Marie de Courcel. Pommard is four kilometers south-east of Beaune. The vines span on the southern « coteaux » (hillsides) of the Cote de Beaune, where is located one of the most prestigious vine-growing areas. The Domaine de Courcel’s vineyard is planted on around 9.5 hectares. It produces one of the highest quality red wines of the Cote de Beaune. Its red wines, made from Pinot Noir, can be characterised by their elegance and minerality as well as their strong tannins, which blend in nicely with strong and beautiful aromas of red berries and toasted bread. The vineyard is essentially composed of prestigious « Premier Crus ». As such, the Domaine is one of the largest estates of « Pommard Premier Crus ». The vineyard is composed of the following appellations : Le Grand Clos des Epenots, Les Rugiens, Les Fremiers, Les Croix Noires. These four Premier Crus enjoy worldwide notoriety. Le Grand Clos des Epenots, which accounts for 50% of the Domaine’s production, and Les Rugiens are in a class of their own in Burgundy. The Domaine also produces a Pommard Vaumuriens, a Bourgogne Pinot Noir as well as a Bourgogne Chardonnay. Annual production, which never exceeds around 30 000 bottles, is sold throughout the world. The wines produced by the Domaine are frequently mentioned and reviewed in leading French or international wine publications.
