    Pommard 1er Cru “Les Epenots”

    The commune of Pommard lies on a slope descending from Beaune, to the north, to Volnay, to the south. Of Pommard’s 832 acres of vineyards, 309 are ranked 1er Cru over 24 climats. Les Epenots is by far the largest of Pommard’s premiers crus, with 75.5 acres. The vineyard for Lucien Le Moine’s Les Epenots has a clay and humidic soil, down on the bottom of the hill. It is compact soil, with not a lot of drainage. The wines as a result are very tannic, and need time. Les Epenots is a very powerful Pommard, with a lot of depth and muscle, and plum and spice notes. It is, as Mounir says, almost Bordeaux-like.
