Description : The village of Pommard is comfortably sandwiched between the town of Beaune and
the commune 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 Côte de Nuits. The « Epenots » is solid and firm in its youth and needs time to mature and mellow out before revealing its full glory. It is intense and spicy with a distinct truffle bouquet and a flavourful richness.
