Domaine Comte Armand - 2019
Domaine Comte Armand
The appellation’s grandest domaine, Comte Armand has
been overseen by winemaker Paul Zinetti since 2014.
Although it takes many years to reach its full potential, it’s
worth the wait as with maturity Epeneux is like a universe
in a glass, exploding exponentially in all directions at
once. It has great intensity and a weight of rich fruit and impressively structured tannins
but like great Barolo, it shows lively floral, elegance and purity too. As long-lived as many
of the Côtes de Nuits’ most renowned wines, it has long been contended that if ever one
Côte de Beaune wine deserves elevation to Grand Cru, this is it.
