Comte Armand Pommard Premier Cru Clos des Epeneaux 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): (the vine ages in this 5+ ha vineyard run from 17 to 70+ years of age; bottled in July, 2007). TLike the 2006, this is presently brooding and even more backward with only grudging and very ripe notes of plum, spice and earth in evidence where the earthy character can also be found on the textured, velvety and mouth coating full-bodied flavors blessed by superb depth of material and so much dry extract that the finish is borderline chewy but not at all aggressive. A serious wine that will need at least 15 and probably 20 years to really be at its best but when it arrives, it should more than repay the wait. Note that in my strong opinion it is pointless to purchase this and try to enjoy it young as it really will need extended bottle age to justify the price of admission. Drink: 2025+. (Apr 2008)
