The 2015 Pommard 1er Cru les Rugiens has an intense, powerful bouquet with layers of ripe wild strawberry, raspberry and cranberry; there is great volume and drive here with floral scents (iris and rose petal) emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe red cherry fruit, a little rustic compared to the Pommard Epenots, broad-shouldered with firm and insistent grip. But I kind of like the "unruliness" of this Rugiens and it stands it in good stead for several years bottle age. This is a great Pommard from winemaker Frederic Barnier and his team.

Distinctive aromas of graphite and iron lead off, giving way to dark fruit flavors of cherry and blackberry, with monolithic tannins. There are offsetting components that in the end find an equilibrium. Fine length.
