    Saturated deep red-ruby color. Highly aromatic nose combines maraschino cherry, redcurrant, roast coffee and sweet oak scents; at once roasted and sappy. Superripe, highly concentrated and thick; an uncanny combination of velvety texture and excellent vinosity. This essence of Pommard offers great mouthcoating volume and outstanding persistence on the palate. Dusty, fine tannins saturate the palate. Certainly one of the Cote de Beaune stars of the vintage.

    The dark ruby-colored 1999 Pommard Grand Clos Des Epenots, from the estate's 8-hectare monopole, has fresh black fruit and sweet oak aromas. Loads of blackberries, cassis, and road tar flavors can be found in its deep, powerful, and muscular character. It has excellent concentration yet a rugged, tannic, firm personality. If the fruit gains the upper hand with final racking pre-bottling, this wine will ultimately merit an outstanding rating. If not, its structure could dominate.

    Very impressive. Big and deep, a complex Pinot that delivers power yet elegance. Much black fruit character, superbly ripe tannins, and a firm structure that's backed by the minerally terroir.

    Almost opaque with very intense black fruit and extremely dense yet elegant medium weight flavors. Quite structured and firm, even backwards at this point but with terrific potential. The old vines character is very apparent and the length is outstanding. This is a huge wine with big tannins yet everything is in balance and this should age for a long time.
