With is nice garnet color, Château Rouget exhibit a nose that is open and elegant altogether. This elegance is confirmed on the palate. The wine has a great body and refined tannins, with a long lingering after taste. A beautiful expression of a grand Pomerol, combining concentration and silky tannins! The wine has a great ageing potential: you will start enjoying it in the next 5-7 years, but it will give you pleasure for the next 15-20 years. The silky touch of merlot combines perfectly with the minerality of the cabernet franc. The wines are blended early into the ageing process and find in this vintage the perfect balance between ripeness and freshness.

Wine AdvocateAn absolutely stunning example from this up-and-coming estate, which has been performing on all cylinders of late, the 2010 Rouget has a dense plum/purple color, a beautifully sweet, expansive nose of spice box and a touch of toasty oak as well as copious quantities of black currants, cherries and plum. Supple and full-bodied, with a powerful mouthfeel and a hint of graphite, this is a deep rich, full-throttle, very sexy and opulent Rouget to drink over the next 15 or more years.

Wine SpectatorDense, with good mouthfeel, offering notes of velvety, warm raspberry and boysenberry confiture. Kept lively by enticing spice, anise, bergamot and mandarin orange hints. The long, clove- and charcoal-studded finish glides along impressively. Best from 2015 through 2027.
