DESCRIPTION

(30% vendange entier; 50% new oak; the Boillots combined their fruit from the upper and lower portions of Rugiens for the vinification): Bright, full red. Minty high tones to the aromas of redcurrant, spices and rose petal. Penetrating and high-pitched, with vibrant flavors of redcurrant, iron and tobacco accented by mint and complicated by saline minerality. The intense, rising, palate-staining finish conveys an impression of power without being at all aggressive. No easy sweetness here but offers an uncommon blend of silkiness and energy. Guillaume Boillot noted that he normally finds Rugiens harder and more rustic than this wine.  Vinous/Steve Tanzer 92-94

(from equally sized parcels in both Rugiens Hauts and Bas that measure ~1 ha). The restrained, indeed almost mute, nose only grudgingly reveals notes of plum, blueberry and violet along with hints of stone and earth. There is fine power to the detailed, precise and energetic middle weight flavors that brim with minerality where the finish is shaped by relatively fine tannins and delivers excellent length. There is good buffering sap and I very much like the balance of this classy if muscular and tension-filled effort. This too should be terrific in time. Burghound 93/2030+
