Domaine Jean Monnier & Fils Clos de Citeaux Pommard Grands Épenots Premier Cru 2020


The land of Grands Epenots is considered one of the best places for Pommard. Its soil, where the surface has a high percentage of pebbles, ensures good drainage, while at the same time the soil layer in the field is thin, which is why the underlying rocks are closer to the surface. Therefore, the Grands Epenots wines are often more mineral, structured, and long-lived compared to the surrounding fields of Pommard.

The Monnier edition comes from vines of 40 years old, located just over 300 meters above sea level on southeast-facing terraces. Here, depending on the vintage, only about 6,000 bottles are produced.

All harvesting and subsequent selection are done by hand. Fermentation occurs naturally and begins with three days of cold maceration, followed by aging in French oak, with only 20% new barrels. It is therefore a Pommard made in a rather traditional manner, requiring time to truly reveal its true self.

The wine's light red color is followed by uplifting and refined aromas of cherries, red plums, balsamic vinegar, licorice, tea, and undergrowth. On the palate, the smooth, silky fruit glides benevolently across the tongue. The tannins show youthful structure and firmness, while the resilient acidity tantalizes the palate. The finish is long and balanced, characteristic of this impressive Pommard, which will undoubtedly excel with aging for 5-10 years.
