Featured here, a 1er cru from each side of Pommard. From the Beaune side of Pommard located just off the main road to town from the north, Courcel owns a dozen acres here. Confusing nomenclature with Les Epenots - there is Grand Epenots and Petit Epenots, then the monopole of another spelling - Clos de Epeneaux which is comprised of both Grand and Petit Epenots. Further, Courcel refers to their wine as Les Grand Clos des Epenots, which is located in Petit Epenots. Regardless, the wines are surely Pommard-powered with Beaune grace and silk – Beaune Clos des Mouches is contiguous. On the Volnay side of the Pommard village is Les Croix Noires, a 3.2 acre vineyard with two other owners Lucien Boillot and Domaine Parent. Near Rugiens there is that power, moderated with the Volnay perfume and finesse.


Swaddled in spicy new oak, this red's black cherry and black currant fruit is fresh and intense. Mineral and earth elements emerge as this develops on the palate. The finish is firm, full of fruit and spice. Best from 2022 through 2036. 50 cases imported.
