Notes from the Winemaker:
The Rugiens (1.07 ha) are located mid hill on the southern slopes, in between Pommard and Volnay. The ground, where both marlstone and clay can be found, is composed of a wide variety of soil. The superior part of the plot has a light (0.2m) soil of marlstone while the inferior part is reddish-brown and deeper (0.8-1m). The land is east facing. The vines are all around 60 years of age. The wines produced are spicy; sweet spices such as cloves. The wines, which are fine and very aerial, are both elegant and concentrated. The tannins, the aromas of blackberry and very ripe raspberry enhance a long finish.
To be served at 15°C.

Ratings & Reviews

93-95 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"Bright medium ruby. Vibrant nose combines blackberry, boysenberry, kirsch, violet, minerals and chocolate. Dense, fine-grained and light on its feet, offering uncanny intensity and penetration to its juicy dark berry and mineral flavors. This graceful, vibrant Rugiens finishes with substantial broad, dusty tannins, harmonious acidity and slow-building length. A real live wire, particularly for a wine made from grapes picked in October. - Stephen Tanzer (Jan 2018)

90-93 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"This is aromatically quite similar to the Fremiers and also flashes a background note of oak influence. The dense, powerful and super-rich mineral-driven big-bodied flavors possess first-rate levels of dry extract while delivering fine length on the mocha-inflected, bitter cherry pit and noticeably warm finish. This is certainly impressive in its fashion but it's somewhat particular in the context of the vintage." - (Apr 2018)
