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. Consume it over the next 15 years. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate February 2012

Tasted at Chateau Clinet. The Rouget ’09 has a fresh, well defined bouquet with wild strawberry, cherry and a touch of rose petal...very feminine and fragrant. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, ripe tannins, just a little toasty and spicy, good weight, modern in style but well balanced with good acidity and delineation towards the finish with hints of bay leaf and spice. Cohesive, very good length. Look out for Rouget upping the ante over the next few years…this is just the beginning. Tasted April 2010.

Wonderful aromas of dark fruits, meat and coffee follow to a full body, with chewy and rich tannins and a long intense finish. This needs until at least 2017 to resolve the chunky tannins. Best ever from here? James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Blueberry and mineral on the nose. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a fruity, vanilla and berry finish. Long. Superpolished and pretty

Very thick. Perfumed. Very sweet and opulent and ambitious. A bit of tannin on the end. You could almost stand a spoon up in this. Clinet? Very rich. Pretty alcoholic finish but there is lots of rich fruit, too. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Another fine wine from this now consistent (and still relatively good value) estate. Aromatic, opulent, the texture of the tannins fine. Long finish. Drink 2016-2030
