Seamless gorgeous ripe fruit right across the palate, and with excellent length. Shows where it comes from (upper part), but a brilliant expression of the terroir. More in aromatic elegance than the grand cru density of the lower part.

There is almost painful intensity to the larger-scaled flavors that are at once muscular yet refined while flashing good minerality on the youthfully austere and sneaky long finale. This too is also quite tightly wound, and I would leave it alone for at least a decade.

The medium-bodied palate is harmonious with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, and gentle grip on the saline finish. A tang of Japanese nori lingers on the aftertaste. Impressive. - By Neal Martin on December 2020

(92-94 points) Notes of wild berries, dark chocolate, spices and grilled meats preface Bouchard's 2019 Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens, a medium to full-bodied, racy and precise wine, with a concentrated, tightly wound core...   (92-94 points) Notes of wild berries, dark chocolate, spices and grilled meats preface Bouchard's 2019 Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens, a medium to full-bodied, racy and precise wine, with a concentrated, tightly wound core of fruit, powdery tannins and a long, lively finish. More suave and elegant than the 2018 rendition, this is a refined Rugiens in the making. - WK

Decanter, October 2020
Rugiens is known for its ruddy soil, with a high percentage of iron.

As a...   Rugiens is known for its ruddy soil, with a high percentage of iron. The 0.42ha parcel owned by Bouchard, however, is completely located in the upper part, called Rugiens-Haut, with a soil that is more white marl. As a consequence it lacks the power of wines from Rugiens Bas, but the trade-off is that it is not at all rustic and has a very elegant texture, plus a lovely red fruit expression.
