Critic Notes

Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens ‘11 has an attractive bouquet with vivacious red cherries, bergamot and cold wet stones. The palate is well defined with a crisp line of acidity. This is a lighter style of Rugiens from de Montille and though it just lacks a little persistence, it does offer fine balance and poise.
