    Product description

    En Primeur Chateau Rouget 2017 is released. Please email finewine@davy.co.uk and ask for information on the En Primeur release of Chateau Rouget 2017.

    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.

    “This has depth and juiciness, making it an enjoyable, bright, if a little austere Pomerol. Tasted twice, and both times it showed well, with slightly backwards tannins that need time in the glass to unfurl. They use a touch of whole-cluster fermentation at Rouget, which may be adding to this early tightness, but there is a lovely freshness alongside a sense of juicy bramble fruits. A small section of the vineyard was affected by frost, meaning there is no second wine, Carillon de Rouget, this year. The rest of the grapes were brought in between 20-29 September, with harvesters going through each plot several times to pick the fruit when ripe. 91 points” Jane Anson, decanter.com

    Offered for sale ‘En Primeur’, in bond. Price shown is per case (12x75cl bottles) and excludes UK duty and VAT which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine lands in the UK.
