Rouget Pomerol 2016
Cabernet Blends | France
The Labruyere’s hired top-gun consultant, Michel Rolland to head the winemaking and adopted biodynamic and sustainable principles in the vineyard, and it’s safe to say the Chateau has been crushing it the last few years. Enter the 2016 vintage, and all of the work and investment over the past two decades payed big dividends with near perfect growing and harvest condistions. As James Suckling said "this could be the best wine ever from here."
RARE, so rare to see well-rated Pomerol priced like this! A MUST for any wine lover! We got ours! While it lasts…!
About The Producer
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.
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.
