A lively mid purple in colour, while the bouquet suggests a fully ripe plummy fruit. This is quite distinguished, and less overtly accessible than the first wine. I appreciated the grainy note from the tannins at the back, and the fruit and the acidity are well integrated. Very persistent. A stylish Pommard! Tasted: September 2019 - Jasper Morris

Outstanding. A discreet but not invisible application of wood surrounds overtly spicy and floral aromas of plum and dark currant that flash plenty of earth characters. There is first-rate punch to the delineated, muscular and mineral-inflected broad-shouldered flavors that terminate in a saline, youthfully austere and impressively persistent finish. Patience will clearly be essential as this will need time. - AM, Burghound

The Rugiens reveals aromas of sweet red and black fruit, game bird and bitter chocolate, the prelude to a deep, full-bodied wine with considerable concentration and a tense, tight-knit core. Like the Taillepieds, chewy tannins make their presence felt, but the wine’s greater mid-palate volume stands a better chance of integrating them. - William Kelley, Decanter

33% whole bunch, 40% new oak. Finished malo only in October. Barrel sample.
Very bright crimson. Positively shining! Some whole-bunch freshness on the nose. And lots of crunchy fruit on the palate with just a suggestion of oak still but this is very confident and muscular. Lots of lip-smacking pleasure in store from this wine. Very clean and long. - Jancis Robinson
