2005 Domaine de Courcel Pommard 1er Cru "Grand Clos des Epenots"

SKU #1038444 93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is now just beginning to reveal hints of secondary to the notably ripe yet still admirably fresh nose of mostly dark berries, earth, plum and violet scents. There is good richness to the round, delicious and markedly powerful medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a long if slightly warm finish that delivers excellent length. This is still on the way up though it's not so structured that it could not be enjoyed now and over the next 30 years, perhaps even longer. Inner quote mark (1/2017)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep red. Very ripe, smoky nose showed mounting red fruits with aeration; ultimately much less extreme than the Fremiers. Then similarly huge in the mouth, with smoke and mineral notes complicated by an exotic stone fruit (peach, apricot) character. This silky, voluptuous wine offers superb depth of flavor and slowly mounting, superripe finishing flavors that saturate the palate. Best of all, it seemed to gain in freshness as it opened in the glass. (ST) Inner quote mark (3/2008)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This red is rich, round and very accessible, tasting of freshly crushed berry and cherry. A phalanx of ripe tannins lurks in the background, but this is balanced and ends with a spicy note. (BS) Inner quote mark (5/2008)

91-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Courcel’s 2005 Pommard Grand Clos des Epenots (which exhibits a notably darker color than Courcel’s other wines) leads with aromas of cassis, smoked meat, bitter chocolate, and resin. In the mouth, this is concentrated and compact in structure, yet rich and expansive in flavor, with dark fruit, meat stock and chocolate mingling in a concentrated reduction, tinged by bitter fruit skin, fruit pit, coffee ground and wet stone. Ample, rich fruit covers the abundant and tightly-stitched tannin, but the almost savagely intense finish betrays a hint of heat from the wine’s roughly 14.5% alcohol. (DS) Inner quote mark (6/2007)
