Clos des Epeneaux: This 5.23-hectare Premier Cru climat is a monopole of the Domaine Comte Armand in the Burgundy appellation of Pommard. A walled vineyard generally square in shape, Clos des Epeneaux stradles two other Premier Cru climats, Les Grands Epenots and Les Petits Epenots, each of which contributes land to the Clos between them. Les Grands Epenots and Les Petits Epenots begin at the northern boundary of Pommard the commune with Beaune, and continue upslope of the RN 73 as it forks from the RN 74 just south of Beaune. Clos des Epeneaux faces south, southeast and the stony, well-drained soil is composed of clay-limestone colluvium over a limestone base. The vineyard lies at an altitude of about 250 meters above sea level.
The name Epeneaux suggests the presence of buissons epineux, the spiny bushes that once grew there.
