    The Domaine des Epeneaux owes its name to the Clos des Epeneaux, an extraordinary five-hectare parcel created by Nicolas Marey at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th century. In 1828, the Clos des Epeneaux and its buildings, located in the centre of the village of Pommard and known at the time as Fief de Rancy, became the property of the Comte Armand family. In 1994, the Domaine property was expanded, first with a vineyard in Volnay and then with several plots in the commune of Auxey-Duresses. With an area of 5.23 hectares, Clos des Epeneaux is one of the ten largest "monopoles" of the Côte d'Or among the 1er crus and grand crus. The age of the vines varies between 30 and 80 years, with a planting density of 12,000 vines per hectare where massive selection is required. The Domaine has been run since 2015 by Paul Zinetti, who, on the strength of his many experiences in Burgundy and beyond, one of them alongside Bruno Lafon in Languedoc, follows the dictates of organic and biodynamic agriculture for all the vineyards on the estate. No herbicides or synthetic molecules in the vineyard, the reintroduction of fruit trees to encourage bee life with interventions reduced to simple herbal teas or natural decoctions, confirm Domaine Comte Armand as the archetypal Pinot Noir of Pommard.
