94Wine Spectator

A detailed, elegant Pommard, displaying cherry, earth and mineral flavors, with a firm underpinning of chalky tannins. Feels lean and sinewy on the long finish. This will make a fine bottle in due time.

90-93Vinous / IWC

Captivating floral lift to the aromas of raspberry and brown spices. A step up in mid-palate texture and suppleness from the Volnays... serious, early-arriving tannins dust the front teeth and cut off the wine's fruit on the back.


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.”


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.
