A perfumed, complex and mostly still primary nose offers up earthy red berry fruit, underbrush and a touch of animale that can also be found on the generous and quite fleshy flavors that possess excellent volume as well as buckets of dry extract that almost render the firm and ripe tannins invisible on the massively long finish. Wow, this is a stunner of a wine with still plenty of upside potential remaining.

Mid-ruby. Much beefier Pommard than de Montille's Rugiens. Only medium weight. Easy, round, full and positive. Excellent balance. Correct and reassuring. Quite a traditional wine; very clean and bumptious.
