Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, November 2018

    A brilliantly classy Rugiens from the lower slopes regarded, along with Clos des Epeneaux, akin to a grand cru in quality. This is a broad and generous wine with excellent richness. The layered flavours linger on the finish.

    Burghound, April 2020,
    Score: 90

    A brooding and slightly fresher highly spiced nose grudgingly reveals notes of plum, cassis, violet, sandalwood and tea. The intensely mineral-driven and muscular large-scaled flavors possess finer tannins, yet the mouthfeel is less opulent and rich, all wrapped in a mocha-infused, long and firmly structured finale. This too could fairly be described as atypical and particular. Drink 2032+.

    Score: 91-93

    A brooding if highly spiced nose grudgingly reveals notes of plum, cassis, violet, sandalwood and tea. The intensely mineral-driven and muscular large-scaled flavors possess finer tannins yet the mouth feel is less opulent and rich, all wrapped in a balanced, long and again, very firmly structured finale. Even so, this is not quite as overtly tannic as the Epenots though this too will require extended patience before it arrives at its apogee. Drink 2037+

    Decanter, November 2018,
    Score: 94

    Big, bold, ferrous and rich, this is true to the domaine's aim to produce serious, slightly forbidding wines that take a long time to soften in bottle. Blood, iron and a butcher's shop full of guts and fresh meat, this needs a decade but will reward your patience. Drink 2027 - 2035

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.
