Wine Advocate 94 points - The 2008 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux is far superior to the 2005. It is relatively backward on the nose, but it has startling delineation with open, natural red-berry fruit – predominantly freshly picked strawberries, raspberry and pomegranate. With continued aeration it offers a cheeky hint of white chocolate. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannins. This is very harmonious and feminine with a silky texture that lends it a Vosne-like finish. What a lovely 2008! Drink now-2022+  (Aug 2013)

The Domaine originally belonged to the Marey-Monge family who had acquired, piece by piece, the magnificent Pommard vineyard known as Clos des Epeneaux, which is one of the larger ”monopole” or solely-owned vineyards in Burgundy. In the mid-nineteenth century it was given to the Comte Armand as part of a dowry, but it was not until 1985, when a young Canadian named Pascal Marchand was named winemaker, that the potential of this great Domaine began to be realized. Under Pascal’s direction for the next 13 years, the Domaine was brought to international prominence and became recognized as the leading estate in Pommard and Clos des Epeneaux as its most prestigious and collectible wine. Since 1989, Benjamin Leroux – another talented young vigneron – has been in charge, embracing the biodynamic farming methods begun by Pascal and refining the powerful structure inherent in the wines.
