1988 Domaine Comte Armand Pommard 1er Cru "Clos des Epeneaux"

SKU #1041845 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark No bricking at all. A densely fruited nose of spice, earth, sauvage and mineral notes that still sports almost completely primary fruit, which is highly unusual in a 20 year old wine that leads to very rich, full, intense and detailed big-bodied flavors that culminate in a mouth coating, velvety and powerful finish that delivers excellent length. While this is indisputably a creature of its vintage, it's a fine example and while this could be approached now with 30 to 45 minutes of air, the mid-palate concentration is such that I believe this will continue to improve for another 5 to 10 years. An impressive '88 in an irregular vintage. Inner quote mark (7/2008)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This is the best wine the Comte Armand has produced since the beautiful 1985. It is intensely colored with a huge bouquet of red and black fruits, spicy new oak, and an intriguing earthy, terroir character. In the mouth, it is splendidly concentrated and full bodied with good acidity. There is plenty of tannin in the finish. This is a large-scaled, yet graceful and well-balanced, Pommard. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/1989)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very rough and youthful, but sharply focused, intense and bursting with berry and cherry flavors, hinting at smoke and spice on the long finish. Needs until 1994 or '95 to settle down, but it should be great. Inner quote mark (2/1991)
