The 2014 Pommard 1er Cru les Rugiens includes one-third whole cluster fruit and 40% new oak. It has more red fruit than the 2014 Les Pezerolles with wild strawberry and Morelle cherry coming through, lending more ripeness and a touch more fruité. The palate is well balanced with a pleasing fleshiness and grip, very well focused and gaining density and structure towards the finish. The Rugiens terroir shows through beautifully here -- one of de Montille's best 2014s. (NM)
(vinified with one-third whole clusters; 40% new oak): Medium red More medicinal on the nose than the Volnay Taillepieds, offering fresh scents of black cherry, licorice and menthol Plush and thick yet fresh and light on its feet, offering excellent intensity and considerable charm to its flavors of dark cherry and earth over a firm mineral underpinning Sweet, aromatic and long on material The moderate use of stems here has preserved this wine's essential suppleness, (ST)
