Importer Note:

Cork. New cuvée. Notwithstanding the Clos des Epeneaux, Leroux has always said there is only one 1er cru that would tempt him back to Pommard; Les Rugiens. A new long-term contract with the same owner as the Volnay Caillerets offered above sees Leroux back in his old stomping ground, once again working the same iron rich red clay soils he did at Comte Armand. In particular Leroux’s vines – two small parcels of 25 and 90 year old vines – lie at the foot of Rugiens Haut, the part of the vineyard that is considered by many (Leroux included) to produce Pommard’s greatest wines, Clos des Epeneaux excepted. Needless to say, Leroux’s return to Pommard is a successful one. This deeply flavoured, almost sumptuous, Pommard was fermented with 50% whole clusters and 30% new oak.  “Seriously good,” might be an understatement. It’s a beauty.

Outstanding Top Value. “A slightly riper nose is composed of dark berry, plum, floral and freshly turned earth where the latter element continues onto the bigger and richer flavors that enjoy an excellent sense of vibrancy. There is a touch of rusticity that arises on the powerful and persistent finish but this is a seriously good Pommard villages and highly recommended if you have at least moderate patience.” 89-92 points, Allen Meadows, Burghound issue 66
