Domaine Parent Pommard 1er Cru Les Epenots 2012
Beautiful, with pure fruit character, along with herb and spice. Elegant front, rich center, expands across the palate to a structured, firm finish. All you'd ever need in a wine.
Delicacy, density, and an innate sense of balance are typical of this great wine. Its color is intense, the nose is very expressive with violet and red fruit aromas like cherry or morello cherry, which express a great complexity. The mouth is fleshy and concentrated, and the tannins are fine, velvety, and elegant. Winemaking: stalking, cold maceration for about 3 to 5 days, temperature control, crushing and pumping over 2 to 3 times a day, total fermentation on skins: 18 to 20 days according to vintages. Maturing: 16 to 18 months in French oak barrels, 30% to 40% of which are new.
