Compte Armand is best known for owning Pommard’s most revered vineyards, Clos des Epeneaux. Their aligoté is a blend of freshness and vividness of ten year old vines located in Volnay combined with the richness and precision of the 90-year old Aligoté Dorée located in Meursault.
Producer Information: Domaine de Comte Armand
After a seven year apprenticeship, the capable Paul Zinetti has taken over here and done an exceptional job under tricky conditions. Fully organic since 2005 and now certified as biodynamic, the lower parts of the vineyard are worked by horse and the reduced compaction is already resulting in a better soil structure.
Epeneaux is, of course, one of the great reds of the Cotes de Beaune.
