Château de Meursault – Clos des Epenots 2016 – Pommard, 1er Cru

The nose is elegant, gourmand, finely tight, well-built and offers concentration as well as juiciness/juicy fruit. This wine should be decanted. It reveals notes of ripe/fleshy plum, fleshy cassis and small notes of violet associated with touches of Sichuan pepper, hints of red fruits, graphite as well as fine hints of cardamom, spices/toasted and nutmeg. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, well-built and offers a good definition, gourmandize, a beautiful juiciness, a beautiful precision, tension as well as a good guideline. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy cherry, fleshy/juicy plum and small notes of fleshy/juicy raspberry associated with touches of small fleshy/juicy red fruits, flowers as well as fine hints of graphite, liquorice and a very discreet iodine hint (in the background). Tannins are elegant, well-built and slightly firm. Good length.
