The restrained, indeed almost mute, nose only grudgingly reveals notes of plum, blueberry and violet along with hints of stone and earth.

92-94Stephen Tanzer

Minty high tones to the aromas of redcurrant, spices and rose petal. Penetrating and high-pitched, with vibrant flavors of redcurrant, iron and tobacco accented by mint and complicated by saline minerality.

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.
