- Domaine Comte Armand used to refer to only Clos des Epeneaux, the 13 acre Monopole that has been in the Armand family for nearly 200 years. Today, they've expanded into Volnay and Auxey-Duresses, but it's the Premier Cru gem that's still their heart. Famously produced for 15 years by Pascal Marchand, in 1999 hand-picked successor Benjamin Leroux was given the reigns.
