Pommard 1er Cru "Clos des Epenots" 2015, Château de Meursault
A second red wine from the Ch de Meursault at the Justerini & Brooks tasting. This Pommard from one of the most sought after premier cru vineyards has a strong nutty bouquet ranging from hazelnuts to Brazil nuts. There is also raspberry and blood orange on the nose. Tight, structured, good length, ripe tannins. A good savoury Pommard. Possibly missing some riper red stone fruit given the rich vintage. At present this underperforms the potential of the vintage and the appellation but could well pad out in time. Scores 72/100 now with the potential to reach 78/100.
