Château Rouget in wenigen Worten

Das Château Rouget ist eine wunderbare Referenz in Pomerol, die der breiten Öffentlichkeit kaum bekannt ist. Das Weingut (17 Hektar) wird von der Familie Labruyère unter dem wachsamen Auge von Edouard Labruyère mit Bravour geführt. Antoine Ribeiro ist für die technische Leitung zuständig und wird dabei vom brühmten Bordeaux-Önologen Michel Rolland beraten. Der Château Rouget wird von Kritikern und Weinliebhabern Jahrgang für Jahrgang als einer der beständigsten Fortschritte der Appellation angesehen. Die Weine von Rouget zeichnen sich durch feine Aromen und einem dichten, seidigen Körper aus.


91-93 Robert Parker Wine Advocate, avril 2022

A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2021 Rouget offers up aromas of sweet berries, cherries, licorice and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, supple and fleshy, it's impressively concentrated, with fine depth at the core, powdery tannins and lively acids. A success in this challenging vintage, in recent years Rouget has benefited from the acquisition of some small parcels on the plateau (in the Clinet sector and near Le Pin), as well as the relegation of the less propitious parts of its historic vineyard to a second wine. Anyone who has tasted the great Rouget wines of yesteryear such as the famous 1961 will know what this estate is capable of, and the Labruyère family is working hard to realize its potential. Tasted three times.

C'est une bonne surprise de trouver le vin à ce niveau dans ce millésime difficile. La couleur est intense, le nez est fruité et la bouche m'apparaît plus minutieuse que jamais.

Terre de vins, avril 2022

Concentration, densité et profondeur marquent le premier nez, avec une note presque atramentaire. La bouche est pleine, suave et salivante à l'attaque, sur une matière pleine et opulente, à l'aromatique généreuse, conclue par une note acidulée. C'est une interprétation très sensuelle et veloutée du millésime.

I like the round tannins and juicy mouth-feel to this wine, showing softness and focus. Medium body. Pleasant redcurrant and chocolate undertones.

RichLy perfumed on the nose, floral scented and vibrant. This has a nice texture, soft and smooth yet tannins grip the mouth and sides of the cheeks and have that slate, liquorice, crushed stone and graphite edge from the terroir. It's quite linear and focused, not moving so much from it's vein of black fruit and minerality but it feels well worked with persistence and a long finish. A touch of salinity at the end is also great. I love the styling on this and will be great in a few years. Tasted four times.
