    This is an interesting wine as the nose is extremely ripe yet it's also extremely fresh with a mélange of liqueur-like red and dark berries, earth and a plenitude of spice elements. There is almost painful intensity to the larger-scaled flavors that are at once muscular yet refined while flashing good minerality on the youthfully austere and sneaky long finale. This too is also quite tightly wound, and I would leave it alone for at least a decade. Drink 2034+.

    Notes of wild berries, dark chocolate, spices and grilled meats preface Bouchard's 2019 Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens, a medium to full-bodied, racy and precise wine, with a concentrated, tightly wound core of fruit, powdery tannins and a long, lively finish. More suave and elegant than the 2018 rendition, this is a refined Rugiens in the making.

    The 2019 Pommard Les Rugiens 1er Cru is much more intense on the nose than the Pommard 1er Cru, offering layers of red berry fruit, wild hedgerow, fern and tea leaf scents. The medium-bodied palate is harmonious with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, and gentle grip on the saline finish. A tang of Japanese nori lingers on the aftertaste. Impressive. Drink 2024 - 2040.

    Rich full purple. The bouquet has a freshness to it, which aids precision. Seamless gorgeous ripe fruit right across the palate, and with excellent length. Shows where it comes from (upper part), but a brilliant expression of the terroir. More in aromatic elegance than the grand cru density of the lower part.
