"Here the slightly less elegant and more deeply pitched nose offers up an attractively fresh and well-layered array of cherry, raspberry, violet, acacia and plenty of spice nuances. As one would expect, the medium weight plus flavors are notably bigger and more muscular with excellent power and drive on the delineated, mineral-inflected and much firmer finish. This youthfully austere effort is classic Rugiens and as such will need at least a decade of patience and probably more like 12 to 15 years of it." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 70

"The 2016 Pommard Les Rugiens 1er Cru has a crisp and refined bouquet with ebullient red berry fruit, briary and light sous-bois aromas. Classic in style, this feels refined and yet does not shortchange in terms of fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a rigid backbone. Quintessentially Pommard, there is just the right amount of dryness to get the saliva flowing. This is a serious, almost aloof Pommard that will not appeal to those with a penchant for more fruit-driven, Volnay-like Pinot Noir. For serious Pommard-lovers only. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting." Neal Martin, Vinous.com
