flagBurgundy / France

Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Pommard 1er Cru les Rugiens from Faiveley has an attractive bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, soy and cooked meats (almost a "Bovril" like scent.) The palate is medium-bodied with rounded and supple tannin, good acidity, soy-tinged red berry fruit mixed with dried orange peel, marjoram and sage. There is typical Pommard like structure and masculinity towards the finish that earns it an extra couple of point. This is a very respectable Pommard from Faiveley given the growing season, though it does not quite exhibit the elan of the Rugiens from Domaine du Pavillon. Oct 2015, www.robertparker.com
