Pommard 1er Cru Epenots by Joseph Drouhin is an elegant and complex wine. Spicy on the nose with the tang of blackcurrants and gooseberries on the palate.

The vineyard is planted on clay and limestone with a plantation density of 10,000 vinestocks/ha. This is done to extract as much as possible from the terroir and limit the production of each vine stock. Yielding just 44 hl/ha is low on purpose, in order for the grapes to reveal every nuance of the terroir.

More than 2,000 years ago, the Gauls selected and propagated the Pinot Noir grape in this location. A temple dedicated to Pomona, the Celtic goddess, may be at the origin of the name. The Pommard Grands Epenots stretch south-east of the premier cru production area, on the Beaune side. The word "Epenots" used to mention a ground covered with thorn.
