Situated in the Pommard appellation of the Côte de Beaune and owned by the family of the Comte Armand in an unbroken line since 1825, the domaine totals 10 hectares, including a magnificent five-hectare monopole of the Pommard Premier Cru Clos des Épeneaux which was put together in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and is one of Pommard’s most revered vineyards. The Domaine also has plots in Volnay and Auxey-Duresses. The average age of the domaine’s vines is 50 years, with some as old as 80. Committed to producing wines that are true expressions of their terroir, the viticulture and winemaking are entirely organic (certified by Ecocert) and conducted in strict accordance with biodynamic principles. The wines are aged depending on their vineyard and plot, but total barrel-aging typically lasts 18 to 24 months. New oak is only used for the oldest vines and even then, not more than 30 percent. These are special wines of finesse and precision, while still having the depth and richness expected of a great Pommard.
