Domaine Comte ARMAND


Red Burgundy

Pommard “Clos des Epeneaux”

Volnay “Les Fremiets”



Product Description

Domaine Comte Armand in Pommard has been under the ownership of the same family in an unbroken line since before the French revolution, an extreme rarity in Burgundy. Until 1994 the domaine owned only one vineyard, their famous 13-acre Monopole Clos des Epeneaux – an outstanding 1er Cru in Pommard. The current Comte Armand – Vicomte Gabriel Armand, is a Parisian lawyer who has continued the family tradition of relying on resident-managers, or regisseurs, to conduct all of the domaine’s affairs.

In 1999 they handed the keys to 23 year-old Benjamin Leroux, a promising local winemaking prodigy who has risen to earn a reputation among the world’s best. Ben completed the transition to Biodynamic farming for the estate

The “Domaine des Epeneaux” owes its name to The “Clos des Epeneaux”, a sumptuous piece of land of five hectares acquired by Nicolas Marey, in the late of the XVIIIth century and early of the XIXth.

In 1828, The “Clos des Epeneaux” and its building, located in the center of Pommard and known under Fief Rancy’s name, were there and then included in the estate of Count Armand’s family.
The Domaine remained as it was until 1994, when it was expanded to vines in Volnay, then with plots of Auxey-Duresses.

Actually, Le Domaine des Epeneaux stretches out over a total surface of 7,5 hectares and develops wines which will be, for everyone, the expression of its “terroir”.
