The vineyard for Lucien Le Moine’s Les Epenots has a clay and humidic soil, down on the bottom of the hill. It is compact soil, with not a lot of drainage. The wines as a result are very tannic, and need time. Les Epenots is a very powerful Pommard, with a lot of depth and muscle, and plum and spice notes. It is, as Mounir says, almost Bordeaux-like.

“Deep medium ruby. Very ripe aromas of crème de cassis, black cherry and smoke. Fat, chewy wine with lovely depth and fullness to its black fruit flavors. Very ripe but still a bit reduced, even youthfully stunted, and in need of more élevage to show more nuance, clarity and lift. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and spreading flavors of kirsch and cherry pit.”
