Domaine NICOLAS ROSSIGNOL Pommard 1er Cru "Epenots" 2017

Wine Region: Burgundy - France

Grape: Pinot Noir

Tasting notes: "Always one of Rossignol's best bottlings, the 2017 Pommard 1er Cru Les Epenots unfurls in the glass with a complex bouquet of orange rind, cherries, cassis, dried flowers, rose petals and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and concentrated, with lovely depth and dimension at the core, framed by fine-grained tannins. There's less fleshy fruit that in the stunning 2016 and 2015 renditions, but this has everything it needs to develop beautifully in bottle." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

About the winery:
Part of the fifth generation, Nicolas joined the family estate in 1994. After a few experiences in the four corners of France and South Africa, he created his own Domaine in 1997. Today, both Domaines are merged, representing 17 hectares and more than thirty appellations. Nicolas believes that the future of wine lies in innovation rather than sticking to the rules of the past. The vineyard is managed sustainably and also takes into account the lunar influence both for the work of the vine and for the development and ageing of the wines.
