This is one of Pommard’s most highly-regarded 1st Growths, lying uphill from Les Petits Epenots, on the Beaune side of the village. The vines date back to 1959 and 1984, and are now managed by Olivier Leflaive, whose team decides on all aspects of cultivation, yield, and harvest dates. 12 barrels were made in 2018, of which 30% are new. Colour is deep purple, the nose being intense and attractive, with stony, black fruit character. Lovely purity on the palate, with richness, balanced tannins and superb length (for drinking 2024-2035+).
