Comte Armand

The jewel in the crown of Comte Armand is the 13 acre premier cru monopole vineyard Clos des Epéneaux vineyard of Pommard. The vineyard and other bottlings from Volnay and Auxey-Duresses are farmed biodynamically. The wines are assertive and incredibly ageworthy.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 90-92
"The 2018 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru is a blend of two parcels, Les Bréterins (limestone soils) and, further down in the village, Les Duresses (deep clayey soils). This has a very cohesive bouquet of raspberry preserve, cranberry and pressed rose petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-boned tannins, a superb line of acidity and impressive structure on the finish. This is clearly a step up from the 2017 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru and comes recommended." -Neal Martin

Robert Parker

RP 90-92
"Offering up aromas of red berries, raspberries, plums and spices, the 2018 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru is medium to full-bodied, charming and succulent, built around lively acids and supple tannins. This is a pretty, elegant Auxey that defies stereotypes of the appellation. As usual, it's a blend of Bretterins and Duresses." -William Kelley
