Peter Maude Fine Wines
2017, Domaine Thierry Violot-Guillemard, POMMARD, 1er Cru, 'Rugiens'
A cool and restrained nose features the essence of spicy red berry fruit aromas that are liberally laced with hints of tea, earth and violet. There is fine volume, verve and detail if less richness to the mineral-inflected flavours that exhibit evident power and muscle on the robust, serious and equally built-to-age finale.This too is excellent. Sweet Spot. 93/100 Burghound.
