Comte Armand

Clos des Epeneaux Monopole Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015


Good now but seems like a lot more life ahead. Ripe red cherries, strawberries, maybe plums. Moderate plus acidity and more tannins than you’d expect from pinot. Some chalkiness and almost meaty notes. Vanilla is noticeable. Just better and better as it opens. — 20 days ago

Difficile de juger pour moi n’étant pas amateur d’alcool fort. Ca me semblait bien fait mais la notation et comparaison est difficile — a month ago

Comte Armand

Bourgogne Blanc Condemaine Chardonnay 2018

Not all Bourgogne are created equal, red or white, this we can all agree. This is one of the best Bourgogne blanc I have had in some time and is from Pommard legend Comte Armand, a house known for their powerful but ethereal reds from Pinot Noir.

A light to medium gold color. Impressive nose and flavors of juicy green and golden delicious apple, slate/stone like minerality, white florals like an elegant honeysuckle, a light toasted hazelnut note, with a touch of baking spice and vanilla you'd expect on this young white Burgundy (all used barrels here btw!). Very good and refreshing acidity. Long and elegant finish, the flavors stay with you while the weightlessness of the palate impresses!

This drinks more like a really good village or 1er as it should as Condemaine is a single parcel near Volnay. I also wanted to try this as it has 10% Chardonnay muscaté which no doubt adds to the complexity and intensity of the nose and palate.

Domaine Armand Rousseau

Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Un vin super jeune mais quel potentiel et quelle matière, très bon maintenant malgré la jeunesse. 93-94

Very young of course but such potential, density and structure, you can still feel this Grand Cru impression when you know it is special.

Vieil Armand

Grand Cru Ollwiller Alsace Riesling 2018

Plastic beach ball, peach, lemon, honey, oyster shell. I think this is technically dry, but there is quite a lot of ripe stonefruit and honey. Medium citrus acidity balances things out with lingering mineral notes.

Balanced and way too drinkable for 13% ABV. Yum

Bandol Mourvedre Blend 2010

The fruit is more advanced than I was hoping but there’s plenty of vigorous length and structure — 8 days ago
