Decanter - Charles Curtis MW

Unlike some of the other wines in this cellar, the Rugiens is slightly reticent and slow to open. With time, there are currant fruit aromas with a savoury edge and hints of earth. The texture is firm, and the grippy tannins need some time to resolve. The grapes are from a tiny 0.17-hectare slice of century-old vines in Rugiens-Haut; one-third are fermented as whole clusters, and the wine is ageing in cask (one-quarter new). (Drink between 2027-2055). 94 Points

Vinous Media - Neal MArtin

he 2022 Pommard Les Rugiens 1er Cru has a well-defined bouquet with raspberry, sous-bois and light floral scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a sapid entry, quite a structured Les Rugiens as it ought to be. It offers grippy, dark berry fruit laced with black pepper towards the persistent finish. Very promising. (Drink between 2026-2048). 93-95 Points

 (from .17 ha holding in Rugiens Hauts). Once again there is a lovely cool, pure and airy quality to the more floral-suffused aromas of red cherry, Asian-style tea and a whiff of crushed fennel. I very much like the texture of the acceptably dense and more mineral-driven flavors that display focused power on the balanced, youthfully austere and chiseled finale. This is also going to need at least some patience and should easily reward a decade or more of cellaring. 2031+. 92-94 Points
