2008 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux, Comte Armand

Drank this at a restaurant a couple of days ago.  Went perfectly with braised ox cheeks and a truffle potatoe puree.
For more vintages of Clos des Epeneaux tasted, see http://barolista.blogspot.se/2011/12/past-glorys-tasting-dinner-with.html

2008 Pommard Clos des Epeneaux, Comte Armand
A young, fresh, fine nose with notes of red and black cherries, undergrowth, fresh herbs, a touch of tobacco and a hint of oak. With air it becomes fatter and a bit more sturdy. Needs time. Very, very good.
The taste is young, ripe and mediun bodied with notes of red cherries, rosemary, dried raspberries, tobacco leaves and earth. It has a lot of perky tannins in the finish. Works great with the food but it shows its ungainly youth on its own. Should turn out fine if you leave it in the cellar for 8+ years.
