Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2013 Rouget was the first vintage where Edouard Labruyère decided to mature everything in barrel (vinification integral). He told me that his team had to conduct four or five passages through the vineyard due to uneven ripening, therefore the harvest took almost one month. It has a bright and you might say perky black cherry and raspberry scented bouquet, nicely defined and with commendable fruit concentration given the vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, not as convincing as the aromatics, the challenges of the growing season denuding it of the complexity of a great season. There is a bit of stiffness here, although that will dissipate with bottle age and the finish is still a little blunt. But considering this is a 2013, this is a decent, short-term Pomerol.
