Product Description

93ST, 90WS "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, no doubt due to the whole-cluster fermentation. This generous, sensual wine finishes with fine but seriously gripping tannins." - Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar, 93+ points!

"Ripe and juicy, featuring black cherry, black currant and wet earth aromas and flavors. Tightens up, leaving a lasting impression of sweet fruit. Minerally aftertaste. Best from 2016 through 2030." - Wine Spectator, 90 points!

The Domaine de Courcel, owned by the same family since its foundation 400 years ago, is located in Pommard on the Côte de Beaune, in Burgundy. The Domaine produces great Burgundy red wines. Its prestigious Pommard Premier Crus include Le Grand Clos des Epenots, Les Rugiens, Les Frémiers and Les Croix Noires. Tradition, modernism and excellence are the pillars of this family-owned winery. Its wines are typical of the notorious Pommard Premier crus.

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, facing east. 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  about 60 years old and produce wines with aromas of red berries and ripe white fruits such as peaches or apricots. The fine tannins are numerous and blend in nicely with the smoothness and the aromas. 

These are wines that require patience. They will taste the best after cellaring at least till 2015-2016.
