    Winemaker's Notes:

    A vigorous, masculine wine typical of Pommard, Les Rugiens has distinct earthy notes and a powerful structure. It should be cellared for 5 years before opening and will develop favorably in the bottle for 20 to 25 years.

    Serve with well-spiced meats, game and strong cheeses such as Epoisses, Livarot and Pont L'Eveque.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Moderately saturated medium red. Sexy perfume of redcurrant, iron and faded rose. Tightly wound and classically dry, with insinuating intensity to the flavors of redcurrant, iron and tobacco. This juicy, very backward wine is showing no easy sweetness today. In fact, I find it a bit dry. This will need another look following the bottling.
    Range: 89-92?

    Less prominent oak fights less with the very fresh red pinot fruit and stone aromas. There is excellent verve to the well-detailed and soil-inflected medium-bodied flavors that possess controlled power on the balanced and impressively long finish. The supporting tannins are fine-grained and an apt description would be that is a Rugiens of relative refinement.
    Barrel Sample: 89-92
