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.

"...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."
"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
