Description

96    James Suckling
“Wow. This is very polished and full of purpose with dark berries, hazelnuts, cedar and chocolate, as well as black olives. Full-bodied, chewy and intense with a focused tannin backbone and intensity. Loads going on here. Finishes strong. This could be the best wine ever from here. Try from 2024.” (February 2019)

94    Antonio Galloni for Vinous
“The 2016 Rouget is a total turn on. A rush of red cherry/raspberry jam, sweet spice, chocolate and tobacco builds as this exotic Pomerol shows off its racy, opulent personality. The full throttle-style works beautifully. There is not a whole lot of subtlety, but the Rouget is undeniably delicious. I loved it. Tasted three times. Drink 2022-2036.” (January 2019)

93    Jane Anson for Decanter
“This is a plump wine with freshness and clarity of fruit, even on the nose. There are beautiful red fruits, definitely not as upfront as some, but it is authentic and vibrant and you can feel the juice coursing through the tannins. It is restrained on the finish, with a subtle, pure succulence.” (April 2017)

92    Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“The 2016 Rouget is deep garnet-purple colored with baked plums, dried mulberries, tobacco and crushed rocks scents with wafts of beef drippings and Indian spices plus bay leaves hints. Medium to full-bodied, firm, grainy and laden with earthy layers, it has a savory finish. Drink Date 2019 – 2032.” (November 2018)
