The 2020 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux 1er Cru was a blend of two instead of four cuvees this year due to the depleted production. It has a precocious bouquet with black cherries, raspberry, menthol and blood orange scents that gather momentum in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins, taut and fresh, lightly spiced with hints of allspice and tangy quince. It displays fine composure towards the finish with impressive length. This is a superb Clos des Epeneaux, though will it surpass the 2019? I m not sure.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2050
