Robert Parker – 92-94
The 2014 Pommard 1er Cru les Rugiens, which comes from “Rugiens Haut” in the north of the vineyard, was completely destemmed in this year. It has a very well defined bouquet, the fruit a little darker here than its peers, with blackberry and blueberry fruit mixed with fine mineralité. This is very refined, very pure. The palate is silky smooth on the entry with red cherries, blackcurrant and a hint of balsamic. There is great tension and harmony here, laser-like focus with a persistent and sorbet-fresh, almost “rocky” finish. This is superb.
Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035

Dark crimson. Relatively rich and gamey. Very mouth-filling and charming – quite different from his Volnays! Pretty exciting!
