The Joseph Drouhin Pommard 1er Cru Epenots wine is a real treasure from Burgundy, France. An offering with exceptional complexity, this wine expresses scents of dark berries, earthy nuances, and delicate aromas of wild red fruits. The palate is silky, presenting a perfect blend of richness and acidity. Its elegant tannins and persistent finish make for an impressive sipping experience. Maturation in French oak barrels imparts an enchanting woody note. With potential for excellent ageing, this red gem perfectly complements red meats and vegetarian dishes with aromatic herbs. Truly a testament to the art of French winemaking.
The Pommard Grands Epenots shows a beautiful deep ruby colour. Its nose is elegant and complex with hints of red fruit (blackcurrant, gooseberry, wild cherry), the tradional expression of Pinot Noir, mingling with grilled and spicy notes. On the palate, the wine is ample with ripe and supple tannins. A very long aftertaste
