RATINGS

92The Wine Advocate

...aromas of red cherry, sweet spice and subtle notes of rich soil. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, richly tannic and supple, with considerable volume and depth, and plenty of savory nuance despite its ample endowment of sweet, ripe fruit.

92+ Stephen Tanzer

...aromas of redcurrant, spices and tobacco. Dense, juicy and fine-grained, offering lovely flavor intensity and inner-mouth floral lift.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Pommard, Les Rugiens

Les Rugiens is really two vineyards. Les Rugiens-Hauts, or “upper,” is a 16-acre Premier Cru vineyard and Les Rugiens-Bas, or “lower,” is a 14.5-acre Premier Cur vineyard just below it. Both are in the Pommard appellation in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune, just south of the village. Since there are no Grand Crus in Pommard, the Premier Crus have special importance. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that “Pommard at its best is the fullest wine made in the Cote de Beaune.”

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
