Terroir: Leflaive’s 1er Cru Epenots is sourced from parcels in Les Petit Epenots on the border with Beaune as well as Les Grand Epenots. The vineyards enjoy an ideal south-southeast exposure on well drained soil of stones, clay and limestone.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested prior to fermentation and aging in a combination of new and used oak barrels and stainless steel.

    "The 2016 Pommard Les Epenots 1er Cru has a fragrant and floral bouquet, laden with wild strawberry, Morello cherry and rose petal aromas, elegant and refined. The purity is irresistible. The palate is a little candied on the opening, succulent and vivacious, veins of blood orange permeating the red fruit with a dash of spice on the finish. Sheer pleasure, although regrettably I find that it refuses to "kick on" in the glass. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting."
