Description

At just over 5 hectares, this is one of the largest monopole vineyards in Burgundy. It is managed biodynamically and with utmost respect not only for the vineyard, but for the expression of its constituent parts. I tasted the young vines first and noted soft orange, red fruits that are light and lifted yet with sinews of from acid running through. The older vines yield a stronger wine that is more animal, spiced and with concentrated, dried fruit peel. Putting the two together only serves to enhance the complexity. Exciting. 2026 to 2034

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.
