Domaine Faiveley Pommard Les Rugiens 2012
Out of stock
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
A beautiful dark ruby colour. The nose gives off black fruit and spice aromas with woody and smoky notes. On first tasting, this wine shows itself to be powerful on the palate with tannins quite present but well blended in. As on the nose, we find pleasant woody notes from being raised in oak. This wine has fine structure and good long-lasting aromas and flavours, which give it interesting cellaring potential.

Wine SpectatorA beam of pure cherry graces this fruity yet dense and structured red. Juicy and balanced, giving a glimpse of what's to come. Balanced and long, with a resonant finish that shows potential. Best from 2018 through 2030. 215 cases made.
Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Pommard 1er Cru les Rugiens from Faiveley has an attractive bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, soy and cooked meats (almost a "Bovril" like scent.) The palate is medium-bodied with rounded and supple tannin, good acidity, soy-tinged red berry fruit mixed with dried orange peel, marjoram and sage. There is typical Pommard like structure and masculinity towards the finish that earns it an extra couple of point. This is a very respectable Pommard from Faiveley given the growing season, though it does not quite exhibit the élan of the Rugiens from Domaine du Pavillon.
