Tasting Notes

    Neal Martin, December 2016,
    Score: 93-95

    The 2015 Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens comes from a parcel with a very shallow top-soil, around ten centimeters before spade hits rock. It has a suave and sophisticated bouquet with ebullient black cherries and raspberry coulis aromas, hints of violet and incense, later just a touch of desiccated orange peel. The palate is very well balanced with svelte tannin, extremely well-judged acidity, a pervading sense of harmony and refinement that belies that puissance coiled up in this Pommard. The class and character of Les Rugiens seems to flow through this wine and the precision on the finish is Grand Cru quality. This is one of the best wines from this revered Premier Cru that I tasted with respect to the 2015 vintage. Queue up to buy some. Drink 2010 - 2040

Producer

Domaine Jean-Marc Bouley

We are delighted to introduce the wines of Thomas Bouley in 2015, joining our selection of great Volnay domaines. Those customers who bought Burgundy en primeur in the early days of Goedhuis Co may have a sense of déjà vu! Johnny first bought from Thomas’s father Jean-Marc in the 1980s. After a few years’ sabbatical it is wonderful to be reacquainted with this prestigious domaine whose wines we consider very special indeed. Much has happened in the intervening years. Son Thomas now makes the wines and is one of the Côte de Beaune’s most dedicated growers, with an unstoppable energy and enthusiasm. They have also just completed one of the area’s most sophisticated new wineries right in the heart of Volnay. This investment will ensure that the already high quality of the domaine will only ascend. This is a great estate making wines which truly reflect Volnay and Pommard.

Region

Pommard

A long popular appellation, Pommard is yet another exclusive red wine area which produces by far the most structured reds of the Côte de Beaune. It extracts rich body and long ageing potential from the limestone/iron-rich clay soil. Some examples can be markedly rustic, yet as time has passed and winemaking know-how has improved, Pommard's wines are becoming softer and more approachable when young. Its vines cover 317 hectares of which over a third are premier cru vineyards. Several have pronounced following and even one, Les Rugiens, is being pushed to become a grand cru.
