A red wine from Pomerol
The Chateau Rouget is a Pomerol wine. The 18-hectare vineyard grows in gravel soils with good exposure, and this allows for an elegant and fine wine that sets itself apart. The blend is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.
The Chateau Rouget 2015 opens to a nuanced bouquet with red fruit and liquorice aromas. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with ripe tannins, and is also quite round with moderate acidity. The wine offers persistent black fruit and spicy flavours while the finish ends with sandalwood notes. This complex wine is worthy of the attention of all consumers.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Chateau Rouget leaps from the glass with preserved plums, spice cake and cassis notes plus touches of underbrush, game and smoked meats and a waft of Provence herbs. Full-bodied, powerful and densely packed with taut, muscular fruit, it's something of a bruiser and yet with an alluring contrast of a plush, velvety backbone and seamless freshness, finishing long and earthy.
