|Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Bordeaux Blend
|Extrait de son coffret en bois d'origine
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.
Delivers lots of plummy fruit, with hints of blackberry jam. Full-bodied, with round tannins and a ripe finish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 19/20 points.
