With Dinner - 2004 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux, Comte Armand

It was two years ago I opened a bottle of this wine, in a vertical tasting of the Clos des Epeneaux monopole -
I thought it would suit the food this evening, a Swedish version of saltimbocca, with Swedish smoked ham and Swedish pig meat - very good! And this lovely Burgundy really worked its way together with the food.

2004 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux, Comte Armand
After one hour in the decanter a deep, fine, still rather young nose emerge with notes of sweet lingonberries, dark cherries, moist earth, warm christmas spicies and scents from a bonfire. Very, very good. Not a green hint in sight. Still a little restrained in a aristocratic way.
The taste is tight and big with a great core of sweet red fruits and notes of moist earth, smoke, new leather and lingonberry jam. Long, fresh and warm. This still has some maturing to do, but I still believe that this always will be restrained in its character. But I like it!
