An opulent red wine from Pomerol

Located in the Pomerol appellation, Chateau Rouget produces red wines in a vineyard planted with 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc with vines that have an average of 40-years-old. The terroir consists of clay and gravel soils, as well as gravel outcrops and clay-gravel terraces. This richness of this land allows for all the typicity, elegance and finesse of Pomerol wines.

At tasting, the Chateau Rouget 2014 reveals a surprising nose of exceptional maturity and opulence for the Pomerol appellation. There are kirsch and creme de cassis aromas. On the palate, it is round, decadent and powerful, before it shows an incredible concentration and catchy tannins.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Rouget was memorable, extremely rich and opulent when I originally tasted it from barrel. Now in bottle, it has retained that brash and ostentatious persona with intense oyster-shell tinged red fruit that really pack a punch compared to some of its more demure brethren. The palate is medium-bodied with impressive density, a muscular Rouget at first but give it time in the glass and you start to see more of its nuances and elegance. Hopefully time will temper the aromatics and if so, this will be a very worthy Pomerol. My only caveat is that the wood tannins are still conspicuous on the finish and they do need to be subsumed.
