The Great Epenots are exposed southeast. The basement is composed of marno-limestone scree and the soil is very rich, deep and fine, with excellent drainage. This characteristic favours the expression of wines, bold and rich. A wine of character that will keep for thirty years.
The nose offer red and dark cherries, boysenberries and complex notes of sous-bois and earthy minerality. On the palate rather ripe fruit – medium depth – primarily red fruit after some time in the glass adding some orange notes in a mature finish. A impressive 1997 – a lesser but charming vintage – holding up beautifully and offering a lovely mature Burgundy experience at this stage. (WineHog)
