Notes of slightly toasty oak and menthol add breadth to the fresh and relatively expressive black raspberry liqueur and spice aromas that evidence a background nose of the sauvage. Here too there is excellent mid-palate concentration but also fine delineation with plenty of mineral character adding lift and a sense of energy to the dusty, mouth coating, linear and seriously persistent finish. This is a classically structured Rugiens that is best left alone for at least 8 to 10 years but should fully reward extended cellaring if desired. AM
