  • Les Grands Epenots is thought to be the greatest vineyard of Pommard.

    Proposed to be a grand cru in 2011 this premier cru has been known to outperform grand crus.  This particular site has a higher percentage of clay in addition to the limestone and alluvial soil present in the vineyard producing a serious style with more elegant yet concentrated fruit.  

    Les Grands Epenots is also home to two monopoles: Clos des Citeaux and a portion of Clos des Epenaux owned by Comte Armand.  Other note-worthy producers include Domaine de Montille, Pierre Morey, Francois Gaunoux and Louis Jadot.
