From a parcel located at the northern extreme of Les Rugiens Haut where there's very little soil, the 2017 Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens unfurls in the glass with a complex bouquet of sweet red-black fruits, orange rind, dark chocolate and potpourri. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with rich structuring tannins, lovely completeness and succulent balancing acids, concluding with a long finish. William Kelley – The Wine Advocate

 Note: from the very bottom of Rugiens-Haut

Tasting note: A restrained, cool and airy nose combines notes of very pure essence of dark cherry, raspberry, cassis and violet. The supple yet powerful and exceptionally serious big-bodied flavors brim with both minerality and dry extract, all wrapped in a focused, linear and youthfully austere finale. This is even more structured than the Fremiers and Clos des Chênes and should age accordingly. Allen Meadows – Burghound

 The 2017 Pommard Les Rugiens 1er Cru is completely de-stemmed this year and matures in 40% new oak. It has a clean and pure bouquet with redcurrant, raspberry and crushed stone aromas, although I just miss the whole bunches contribution of the Fremiets. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe fleshy red berry fruit, brown spices and sage. The new oak is apparent on the finish although Thomas Bouley mentioned that this is only a recent phenomenon and it should reintegrate by time of bottling. Neal martin – Vinous Media- Neal Martin
