Lot #157. Comte Armand Pommard Clos des Epeneaux 1990

Description: Consists of 5 Magnums, 1.5L
Score: 94 RP.
"Similar to the 1990s from one of Pommard's other top producers, Armand and Aleth Girardin, this is a monster wine. It is one of the most concentrated, massive Pinot Noirs I have ever tasted. The wine was bottled with no fining or filtering after it had spent 23-months in small oak casks. The color is black/purple, and the nose offers up sweet aromas of licorice, minerals, and super-ripe black fruits intertwined with the smell of toasty vanillin new oak. In the mouth, there is awesome concentration, a thick, glycerin-imbued, full-bodied, chewy texture, and mouthsearing tannins in the explosively long finish. This should prove to be a monumental Pommard, but prospective purchasers will need to wait 10-12 years for this wine to shed some of its tannic clout." Wine Advocate #84, Dec 1992
Notes: 1x 2cm, very lightly scuffed and very lightly wrinkled capsules, lightly wrinkled labels.
