Having acquired a real reputation with the wines from his trade, since 2006, with the help of his son, Dominique Laurent has also created a small producer-farming establishment from vineyards leased to a winemaker of Vosne-Romanée. He does not deal with vinification but élevage and bottling. Nevertheless, he supervises vinification. The father and son like to work grape musts that have not been destemmed and to mature their wines without sulphur. They use new barrels, the signature of the maison. Dominique Laurent's entire range of wines is characterised by a high degree of purity and to be accessible to all ages. This recipe has proved its worth to fans all over the world.
About the cuvée
The Les Rugiens premier cru is one of the most sought after wines in the commune of Pommard. Its exceptional terroir allows it to produce sophisticated wines with greater concentration than can be found anywhere else locally. On the nose, Dominic Laurent's Rugiens Pommard offers aromas of red berries, and sour cherries in particular, with spicy notes (pepper and cinnamon) and light smoky notes. Direct and slightly austere on the palate.
