Epenots in both petit and grand, produces wines that mature with a much finer mouthfeel and tannin structure than other vineyards throughout Pommard. This is due to varying soils from the Avant Dhuene and the perfect gradient and aspect. The soils are very red and high in limestone. The Pierre Morey plot is over 55 years old and covers 0.43 hectares.
Tasting Note: Dark brooding plum and black currant cassis. Very suave, enticing nose.The same brooding suave fruit profile but light, refined and really very, very good. Wonderful! - Jono Hersey, FWC
Allen Meadows, Burghound: A discreet application of wood sets off the elegant and pure essence of red berries, earth and a pretty floral hint. There is fine mid-palate density to the bigger-bodied and equally muscular flavors that exhibit excellent length on the complex, youthfully austere and even firmer finale. This is potentially outstanding though like the Santenots, it's clearly built-to-age and a wine that's going to require at least some patience.”

Pre Arrival Offer
We embrace the classic and historic 'en Primeur' system. It originated in Bordeaux and translates directly to 'of the first'. While in Bordeaux it gives the ability to a buyer to purchase the wine still in barrel, at The French Wine Centre it enables our clients to secure their preferred wines a month or two before the wine arrives on our shores. There is also a significant saving.More Info
