Château Rouget is currently owned by the Labruyere family, and is consulted by oenologist Michel Rolland. Located in the Pomerol appellation, they own 18 hectares, of which 85% is Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc. This is a very small producer, by Bordeaux standards, averaging production of a mere 6,500 cases per year. The estate makes a second wine named Clocher de Rouget, but it has not produced this in 2017; a sad impact of the 2017 frosts.
Offered for sale ‘En Primeur’ under bond. Price shown is per case (6x75cl bottles) and excludes UK duty and VAT which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine is released from bond. Onward delivery from bond charges are not included, free delivery on orders above £100 does not apply. Reward Card points are not accruable or redeemable on ‘En Primeur’ or In Bond sales.
Deeply colored, the 2018 Château Rouget is another impressive Pomerol, which is a region loaded with impressive wines in 2018. Cassis, black raspberries, white chocolate, and a touch of spicy wood all flow to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully layered, expansive 2018 that has top-notch mid-palate depth, notable purity of fruit, and silky tannins.
