Domaine Yvon Clerget, Pommard Rugiens 1er Cru 2001

Envoyer Imports, Laguna Hills CA.

Pale crimson.  A bit mute on entry but the wine opens out to reveal a firm iron bolt dissolved in candied raspberry.  Pillowy textures, a touch of roasted beet.  Taut and positive at the end; Rugiens can be metaphorically dark but this one points the way forward.  Now – 2021+.
