Lot #313. Comte Armand Pommard Clos des Epeneaux 2012

Description: Consists of 1 Magnum, 1.5L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 94-96 AG.
"In most vintages, there are three distinct cuvées that make up the final blend for the flagship Pommard Clos des Epeneaux, but in 2012 there are just two. The first cuvee, from the top of the vineyard, is intensely tannic and structured. Floral notes lead to dark red cherries and crushed rocks in a wine that is all about crystalline purity and delineation. The second cuvée, from the bottom of the hill, presents more depth and volume. A representation of the final blend is striking. Sadly, the entire production will be bottled only in magnums, of which there will be just 4,000 to go around, versus the normal production of about 22,000 bottles. Readers who can find the 2012 should not hesitate, as it is shaping up to be one of the wines of the vintage." Vinous, Jan 2014
Provenance: The Casier Cellar
Notes: Very lightly wrinkled, very lightly bin soiled label.
