Les Rugiens is consistently the longest-living, most complete First Growth in the village, and here we have a superb example. 100% whole bunches were retained for fermentation. Colour is deep, purple-ruby, with aromas which were fine yet discreet when tasted in October (but Rugiens often takes time to show its pace). Palate is magnificent – densely fruity, richly structured, with well-ripened tannins in balance with the wine’s opulence, and terrific length (for drinking 2025-2038+).
