Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 94
James Suckling
Wonderful aromas of dark fruits, meat and coffee follow to a full body, with chewy and rich tannins and a long intense finish. This needs until at least 2017 to resolve the chunky tannins. Best ever from here?
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This opulent, sexy 2009 Rouget is composed of primarily Merlot blended with a touch of Cabernet Franc. Sandy, loamy soil notes interwoven with kirsch and Provencal garrigue jump from the glass of this full-bodied, opulent, rich Pomerol. Abundant fruit on the attack, mid-palate and finish characterize this over-achiever. Consume it over the next 15 years.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This rounded wine is dense, with firm tannins that are well molded into its sweet-tasting structure.

Chateau Rouget, , France - Bordeaux
Chateau Rouget
Known over two centuries, the great wines of Pomerol Rouget Castle takes its name from Rougier, his former land, larger than today. Quoted in reference works (Cox and Ferret) from 1868 for the quality of its wine, the castle has retained its charm as ever: a facade intact covered with ivy, a park visitor welcome the twenty-first century as they host the nineteenth. Owner of Château Rouget since 1992, the family lovingly Labruyere preserves the past as it prepares for the future. Arrived in Bordeaux, it is not new to wine: its head is in fact Jean-Pierre Labruyère, heir to a family long after the Beaujolais vineyards. After the necessary renovation of part of the vineyard, it was attached to the vat room and cellars, now among the best performers in the name. In 1999 they added two acres, purchased from prestigious nearby castles, the vineyards of Château Rouget now extend over 18 hectares. They are aged about thirty years on average, on a clayey soil and gravel, sometimes of clay and silica, and a basement of ferruginous alios. Under the guidance of Michel Rolland, an internationally renowned winemaker, responsible since 1997 for monitoring of the vineyard and wine, and Antoine Ribeiro, Head of the Culture Area, the two grape varieties (85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon) are harvested as late as possible, manually and in small crates to best meet the perfect ripeness of grapes.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
