Domaine de Montille Pommard Premier Cru "Les Rugiens" Double 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is also quite restrained with ultra-pure aromas of wet stone, floral hints, sandalwood and very fresh red berry fruit scents. There is a focused power to the robust yet refined medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of supporting sap that helps to buffer the otherwise firm and well-integrated tannic spine on the explosively long, balanced and moderately austere finish. This beauty will also require ample patience." -Allen Meadows, Burghound (92-94 Points)"Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens ‘11 has an attractive bouquet with vivacious red cherries, bergamot and cold wet stones. The palate is well defined with a crisp line of acidity. This is a lighter style of Rugiens from de Montille and though it just lacks a little persistence, it does offer fine balance and poise." -Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (90 Points)
