The Epenots face south-east and where it’s positioned there is little or no wind. The Epenots is more delicate and elegant compared to other appellations. It has a rich ruby colour and is considered more of a feminine style of Pommard. It is located very close to our Beaune 1er Cru “Clos des Mouches”.
This elegant and straightforward Pommard 1er Cru “Les Epenots” has an expressive bouquet of red and black fruits on the nose, accompanied by floral and animal notes, herbaceous and spicy. The mouth has a beautiful finesse, the nose is fresh and fruit, an abundant wine – perfectly balanced.
About the Wine Maker
One of Burgundy's best kept secrets is this domain, which has been run by Claudine Gaunoux since the late 1990s. Throughout the year, she works meticulously in the vineyards to prune and tackle potential plant and grape problems at the source. As a result, Claudine harvests only the best grapes, which are then vinified and matured in stainless steel tanks. 'Wood is make-up for bad wines' is her adage. The fact is that her wines - with pure fruit flavors and minerality - are different from others. And as the connoisseurs know, Gaunoux's wines can be stored for a brilliantly long time!
