Comte Armand 2022

Comte Armand 2022

A long time organic and now biodynamic domaine which makes some of the best red wines of the Côte de Beaune.

With the 2022 Pommard 1er Cru Clos des Épeneaux securing the prestigious 5 Star rating from Jasper Morris MW it really is a wine of Grand Cru quality in an appellation with no Grand Cru!

5 Stars “An outstanding wine in its category. This accolade will be given very rarely, certainly to less than 10% of wines tasted across the year.”

Balanced orders will be given priority.

“Paul Zinetti likes the balance, ripe but not too much so, with the acidity holding up. He started picking on 27th August, apart from a quick excursion two days before to bring in the ever-precocious Fremiets. Fermentations went well, and Paul finds the wines worthy of a full, long elevage. He used no whole bunches, there being no room in the vats as 2022 was the largest vintage since he took over in 2014: even so, just 36 hl/ha for the Clos des Epeneaux and below 40 overall. The reds were still in their original barrels when I tasted and, as usual, we tried both all the component parts of the Clos des Epeneaux, plus a few older vintages in bottle. Reds not racked.” – Jasper Morris MW

This domaine has been certified organic for years by Ecocert and is also biodynamic. There are plans to replant fruit trees around the Clos des Epeneaux to rediscover biodiversity.

The 2022 Bourgogne Aligote was picked two weeks after the main harvest and racked just before the 2023 picking. It has quite a primal bouquet with grapefruit and Conference pear, gaining delineation in the glass. The palate is well-balanced with a lovely sense of "rondeur," slightly lower in acidity than last year but with commendable purity on the finish. Lovely. [Neal Martin, 11/01/2024]

Anticipated maturity: 2024-2030

First we tasted the component parts. (1) Young vines from 1980s. A deep concentrated purple. Lesser foliage in the hot dry summer has concentrated the colour and other aspects, giving a dark style of fruit as well, with a nutty finish, but good acidity. (2) A blend, mainly from plot #3 and a bit of #1. Mid purple in colour, less demonstrative on the nose. A much suppler style of fruit, less forceful acidity, fine length, more typical Epenots here. (3) Old vines, 90+ years old: A deep glowing purple. A little more intensity, a gorgeous quality of deep red fruit, just a touch tougher in its tannins, plus the acidity. (4) Press wine: dark purple, powerful rather than fine on the nose, more volatile, but could be useful in the blend. Sweet thick dark red to black fruit. Chunky stuff. And now the blend: A deep purple colour with only a very slightly lighter rim. The bouquet suggests poise as the fruit has melded together harmoniously. On the palate this is, as almost always, a much more complete wine than the individual parts. The wine seems to push down deeper while retaining all the class of the very best components. We are approaching the cusp of red and black fruit, the acidity is perfectly harnessed and the tannins are fine grained. Potentially a very fine Clos des Epeneaux. Drink from 2032-2040+ [01/10/2023]

A similar bright fresh purple, with just a little more fruit weight on the palate. A little bit plusher in texture than the village Auxey, but still with notable acidity behind. A crunchy energy alongside the darker fruit. Drink from 2028-2032. [01/10/2023]

An attractive light fresh purple, with a restrained nose showing some red fruit. The wine is much more demonstrative on the palate, with crunchy raspberry fruit, some tannins, good acidity. Still very youthful so Paul will prolong the elevage. Drink from 2026-2030. [01/10/2023]

Mid crimson to purple, with some reduction on the nose. A concentrated dark raspberry fruit, still with this reductive element. If and when that clears there is a fine long finish to look forward to instead. Impressive fruit in the end, so scored on the asu,mption that the reduction will clear. Drink from 2028-2034.
