Chateau Rouget 2008
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
Similar in style to the 2008 Bon Pasteur, the dark ruby/plum-colored 2008 Rouget is unquestionably a sleeper of the vintage. Notes of mulberries, black currants and sandy, loamy soil as well as a lush, seductive, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and good purity as well as depth suggest it can be drunk now and over the next decade or more.
Winespectator / James Suckling (89)
Delivers lots of plummy fruit, with hints of blackberry jam. Full-bodied, with round tannins and a ripe finish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
