  • Goedhuis, December 2017

    A little more layered and textured than the already very classy Grand Clos des Epenots. This has strong Black Forest and autumnal fruit characters, with some Moroccan spice and smoky mocha. Full, broad, structured and intense, whilst remaining restrained on the finish. A fine example of great Pommard. Superb in every way.

  • Burghound, April 2018, Score: 90-93

    This is aromatically quite similar to the Fremiers and also flashes a background note of oak influence. The dense, powerful and super-rich mineral-driven big-bodied flavors possess first-rate levels of dry extract while delivering fine length on the mocha-inflected, bitter cherry pit and noticeably warm finish. This is certainly impressive in its fashion but it's somewhat particular in the context of the vintage. Outstanding. Drink 2031+

  • Stephen Tanzer, January 2018, Score: 93-95

    Bright medium ruby. Vibrant nose combines blackberry, boysenberry, kirsch, violet, minerals and chocolate. Dense, fine-grained and light on its feet, offering uncanny intensity and penetration to its juicy dark berry and mineral flavors. This graceful, vibrant Rugiens finishes with substantial broad, dusty tannins, harmonious acidity and slow-building length. A real live wire, particularly for a wine made from grapes picked in October.

  • Jancis Robinson, January 2018, Score: 16+

    Deep crimson. Quite intense nose with lots of sweet fruit. Long macerations? Quite a bit of tannins and more than a hint of rather chestnutty wood. Drink 2024-2043

Producer

Domaine de Courcel

De Courcel is one of the Côte de Beaune’s grandest estates, having been in the ownership pf the de Courcel family since the late 17th century. The estate is skilfully managed by Yves Confuron from Vosne Romanée. He prefers to pick late, allowing him to vinify with whole bunches and age his wines a little longer in cask before bottling, which he feels provides an added layer of texture to the wines.

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.
