Chateau Rouget 2016: a Pomerol with well-structured tannins

A red wine produced in the Pomerol appellation, Chateau Rouget has the benefit of a 17-hectare vineyard. The vines have an average age of 40-years-old, and are planted on gravel ridges and clay-gravel terraces. The estate’s blend consists of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. The Chateau Rouget 2016 is aged in barrels of which 33% are new and the remaining are old ones.

The Chateau Rouget 2016 develops an opulent nose with blueberry and creme de cassis aromas. On the palate, the wine is quite soft with a slight bitterness during the attack. The tannins are quite apparent and structured.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Rouget is deep garnet-purple colored with baked plums, dried mulberries, tobacco and crushed rocks scents with wafts of beef drippings and Indian spices plus bay leaves hints. Medium to full-bodied, firm, grainy and laden with earthy layers, it has a savory finish.
