A fantastic and acclaimed terroir in a superbe vintage. A flagship wine from our House !
AT A GLANCE
This Pommard 1er Cru "Les Rugiens" shows a great deep red color with purple hues. Very intense nose (raspberry, peony, tobacco). Mouth is very open and with solid texture, yet not harsh. Velvety tanins are very finely mixed with the oak, bringing a lovely texture and complexity. A deep wine that will age beautifully with the years.
