Steeming from a "terroir" located at the bottom of the hill, on a brown, limestone ground, very poor and stony on the surface, with a layer of hard rocks underneath. This wine is heavy and deep, with a structure and great finesse and to be kept : ten to fifteen years for age. In the "Clos des Epeneaux", vines stretchs out ten to seventy years. The Pommard Clos des Epeneaux 1er cru results of the blending of this different plots.

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Epeneaux offers a pleasant marine influence on the nose with touches of iodine and seaweed infusing the dark black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm but not austere tannins. There is good density here, the best balanced Pommard of the flight, the finish showing fine delineation, structure and typicity. This the most complete wine of the flight, although winemaker Benjamin Leroux crafted a superior wine in 2012.
