2005 Camille Giroud Pommard 1er Cru "Les Epenots"

SKU #1256606 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A smoky, beefy style, with deep black fruit, licorice and mineral flavors. Concentrated and dense, with plenty of sweet, ripe fruit to match the structure. It all plays out on the lingering finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (5/2008)

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Even the mild reduction can't detract from the layered, stylish and ripe nose featuring red and black pinot fruit and gorgeous violet notes that introduce, rich, sweet and deep flavors that are at once pliant on the mid-palate yet structured and linear on the intense and hugely long finish. This is a classy Epenots with a velvety mouth feel and real power and this too should reward up to a decade of cellaring. (AM) Inner quote mark (4/2007)

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Camile Giroud 2005 Pommard Epenots is meaty and substantial, with plum, cassis and blackberry fruit accented by bay leaf, and underlain by rich beef broth. The tannins offer a subtle chewiness but the dark fruit character and marrow manage to outlast them. (DS) Inner quote mark (4/2007)

88-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark red. Aromas of cherry, plum, redcurrant and spicy oak. Suave, silky and fresh, with a perfumed quality to the red fruit and spice flavors. The wine's minerality and fine tannins allow for good fruity persistence on the back end. This is from the Clos des Citeaux, which is situated on the Grands Epenots side of this premier cru and thus yields a more elegant style, says Croix. (ST) Inner quote mark (3/2007)
