Domaine des Epeneaux takes its name from the famed Clos des Epeneaux vineyard, acquired by Nicolas Marey in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. This prestigious parcel became part of the Comte Armand family in 1828. Over time, the estate expanded to include vineyards in Auxey-Duresses and Volnay, reaching its current size of nine hectares.

Their philosophy revolves around respect for nature and capturing the essence of the terroir. They meticulously manage the vines using organic and biodynamic practices, fostering a healthy soil environment.

Domaine Comte Armand prioritizes gentle extraction methods to preserve the fruit's purity. Grapes are hand-harvested and undergo meticulous sorting. Vinification involves a cold pre-fermentation maceration, followed by spontaneous fermentation and extended maceration periods.

The lunar cycle significantly influences their practices, with some processes like maceration lasting a full lunar cycle (around four weeks) to promote optimal extraction and minerality. Depending on the appellation and vine age, the wines are aged in barrels for 18 to 24 months, with a controlled use of new oak.

The crown jewel of the estate is the Clos des Epeneaux, a five-hectare monopole vineyard planted with Pinot Noir vines aged between 30 and 80 years. This premier cru vineyard is renowned for producing elegant and powerful wines.

Under the leadership of successive winemakers, particularly Pascal Marchand, Benjamin Leroux, and currently Paul Zinetti, Domaine des Epeneaux has risen to become one of the top Pinot Noir producers in the Côte de Beaune. Their dedication to organic farming, intuitive winemaking techniques, and long aging periods have garnered them a stellar reputation.

In essence, Domaine des Epeneaux offers a unique blend of history, respect for tradition, and innovative techniques, resulting in exceptional Burgundy wines that capture the essence of their terroir.
