92-95 JM / 91-94 BH / 91-93+ WA

 

Two thirds whole bunch vinification and a little more new wood. There is a certain density of purple fruit in the middle and a more powerful if more backward behind. There is a depth to this not seen elsewhere in Pommard. Marvellous depth and for the long term, yet still engagingly accessible. Tasted: November 2018. Jasper Morris

Tasting note: Firm reduction knocks down the underlying fruit at present. There is more size and power to the equally mineral-driven flavors that aren't especially dense, though neither are they dilute, while offering outstanding depth and persistence on the notably firm finale. Patience suggested. Sweet Spot – Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2017 Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens Cuvée Hubert will demand some patience, as it is one of the most potentially long-lived wines in the de Montille cellar. Revealing aromas of ripe cherries, cassis and licorice that mingle with hints of black truffle, dark chocolate and rich soil, it's medium to full-bodied, ample but tight-knit, with tangy acids and fine but firm, chalky tannins. Powerful and broad shouldered, it's a classic Rugiens in the making. William Kelley – The Wine Advocate
