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.
