andrée taupenot 1989 pommard 1er epenots

I’ve no info on the domaine, but please fell free to inundate me with stuff! Anyway, this is the first of a couple of bottles I picked up…
1989 Andrée Taupenot, Pommard 1er Les Epenots try to find this wine...
Medium, medium-minus colour – some amber at the rim. The nose starts with fungus and undergrowth to be replaced in short-order by dense, chocolate coated red fruits. The acidity starts a little pronounced, but also that slightly discordant note quickly fades. It’s fresh with a lovely burst of flavour in the mid-palate and still a rasp of tannin too. Good length. It has a hint of the rustic, but was devoured – a super bottle.
Rebuy – Yes

    I’ve not seen this maker, but assume they are related in some way to the Taupenot-Merme domaine, which has produced some really lovely wine in recent years.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
