Winemaker Notes

"This sleeper of the vintage offers a dark ruby/purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of loamy soil, black cherry jam, truffles, and resiny characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy, soft, and irresistible, it can be consumed now and over the next decade."

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.

Carneros

View all wine

Known for elegant wines that combine power and finesse, Carneros is set in the rolling hills that straddle the southernmost parts of both Sonoma and Napa counties. Its close proximity to the San Francisco Peninsula and the San Pablo Bay is instrumental in controlling the climate of the area. The winds from the San Pablo Bay create a cooling effect ideal for producing wines with crisp acidity and balanced flavors.

This cooler pocket of California lends itself to growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and more recently, Old-World style Syrah. While more delicate than most wines from neighboring regions, these are firmly structured, complex, and full of flavor. Carneros is also an important source of sparkling wines made in the style of Champagne.
