Category Red Wine
Origin France, Bordeaux, Pomerol
Brand Chateau Rouget
Alcohol/vol 14%
Deep ruby colour with purple reflections. Expressive black and red fruit bouquet with elegant vanilla and spicy notes. Opulent and structured palate with notes of plums, blackcurrant, mulberry and chocolate. Long savoury finish embraced with ripe and silky tannins featuring spices and roasted notes. Ageing Potential: 15-20 years. It can be enjoyed from 2015 but we recommend to keep it in the cellar 3 or 5 additional years if you want to discover all of its aromatic palette.

The 2016 Rouget is an especially racy, voluptuous Pomerol with all the elements in the right place. Sweet tobacco, herb, anise and leather add lovely aromatic topnotes. Sexy and inviting, with no hard edges and terrific overall balance, the 2016 Rouget is a winner. I loved it. Tasted two times.

Showing lots of upfront oak influence, the 2016 Château Rouget nevertheless has some serious density and depth, with beautiful fruit. Notes of chocolate, smoked earth, and camphor all develop with time in the glass, and on the palate, it's full-bodied, firm and chewy. It could use more elegance, but this is going to round into form with 2-4 years of bottle age, at which point the tannins are going to be more integrated and it's going to show more charm. It should keep for 15 years or more.
