Description

The fineness and freshness of a Pomerol wine

The estate

Located within the Pomerol appellation on the right bank of Bordeaux, the origins of Chateau Rouget date back to several centuries ago. Although Chateau Rouget has been mentioned in cadastral archives from 1700, its terroir was recognized for its quality at the end of the Roman Empire, making it one of the oldest estates in the appellation. The passion and rigor of the various owners in running this vineyard allowed Chateau Rouget to be recognized at the end of the 19th century as one of the best vintages of the appellation. Chateau Rouget is the only Bordeaux estate belonging to a family from Burgundy following its acquisition by the Labruyere family in 1992.

The vineyard

Chateau Rouget watches over a 17-hectare vineyard. Aged by around 40 years, the vines are planted on a terroir made up of gravel and clay surfaces. The basement is made up of gravelly hilltops and clayey-gravelly terraces.

The vintage

A wet winter preceded an extremely early spring which resulted in vegetative growth being ahead of time throughout the year and up to the harvests from 15 to 30 September. This vintage ranks among the earliest in the history of the estate.

Blend

The 2020 Chateau Rouget is made from a blend of Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Franc (20%).

Tasting

Smooth and fruity, this 2020 Chateau Rouget seduces with its freshness, tension, beautiful concentration and significant aging potential.
