Pommard Clos des Epeneaux ( owc 6-pack ) - Comte Armand

Tasting Notes for Pommard Clos des Epeneaux ( owc 6-pack ) - Comte Armand, 2005:
The 2005 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux was still in three lots segregated by age and location of vines when I tasted — each fascinatingly delicious in itself, and the concentration of the old vines portion in itself almost too severe. Fascinating dark berry, carnal and mineral notes mingle in the nose. Low-tone sirloin meatiness, black cherry, cassis, faintly bitter black chocolate, and toasted hickory inform a glycerin-rich, polished, yet firmly structured palate. Notes of licorice, horehound, and mineral salts add complexity to a finish of palate-staining intensity and grip. This superb Pommard should require 5-7 years of cellaring and reward considerably more. Young Benjamin Leroux took over in 1999 from Pascal Marchand (who made this estate’s modern reputation), and the wines have never tasted better, nor more ageworthy. The domaine has also continued to grow — through purchase and rental — beyond their famous 13 acre core property, the Clos des Epeneaux. The wines had never been racked when I tasted them — that will only happen when they are assembled for bottling (unfiltered) — so allowance must be made for slight reduction.

Vosne Romanee - Rouget, Emmanuel

75 DP 0 3 - 150
Tasting Notes for Vosne Romanee - Rouget, Emmanuel, 2005:
A blend from five parcels, Rouget’s 2005 Vosne-Romanee offers a lovely, sweet scent of black fruits and flowers, incense, cumin and nutmeg. There is a striking palate counterpoint between brightly fresh black raspberry, cherry, and a creaminess of texture and caramelization of oak, finishing with beautiful, pure sweetness of black fruit liberally spiced and subtly underlain with chalk. You’d be hard pressed to find a more pristine or effusive village Vosne. One scarcely notices the structure, although I think it’s there. This is a case of Ŕdrink it now or drink it laterő — you can’t lose. Wine Advocate # 171 Jun 2007
