About

90-93

Bright ruby-red. Captivating floral lift to the aromas of raspberry and brown spices. A step up in mid-palate texture and suppleness from the Volnays, but today the serious, early-arriving tannins dust the front teeth and cut off the wine's fruit on the back. This dry, savory Rugiens will need cellaring.

91-93 Allen Meadows - Burghound

"...There is a lovely sense of verve to the more obviously mineral-driven and more muscular flavors that firm up quickly on the dusty, sappy and youthfully austere finale. This is textbook Rugiens that is built to age."

Product Description:

"Grapes are hand harvested and sorted upon arrival at the domaine. Following a short maceration the must undergoes primary fermentation in a combination of stainless steel and wooden vats. The young wines are aged in 70% lightly toasted new oak barrels for 16 to 18 months." -- Importer
