Pommard 1er Cru "Clos des Epenots" 2015, Château de Meursault

A second red wine from the Ch de Meursault at the Justerini & Brooks tasting. This Pommard from one of the most sought after premier cru vineyards has a strong nutty bouquet ranging from hazelnuts to Brazil nuts. There is also raspberry and blood orange on the nose. Tight, structured, good length, ripe tannins. A good savoury Pommard. Possibly missing some riper red stone fruit given the rich vintage. Scores 19-21/30 for a Pommard premier cru.
