Lucien Le Moine Pommard 1er Cru “Les Rugiens” 2016 (94 VM)

“Bright ruby-red. Highly nuanced nose melds aromas of cherry, raspberry, flint and tobacco lifted by white pepper and rose petal; one feels the red soil influence here. Delivers a winning combination of silky texture and inner-mouth floral lift to its red fruit flavors, not to mention terrific mineral tension and a light touch. Finishes with spreading, fine-grained tannins, rising length and noteworthy mineral thrust. At once flashy and noble, this Pommard has Côte de Nuits-like class.”
