Critic Notes

An absolutely stunning example from this up-and-coming estate, which has been performing on all cylinders of late, the 2010 Rouget has a dense plum/purple color, a beautifully sweet, expansive nose of spice box and a touch of toasty oak as well as copious quantities of black currants, cherries and plum. Supple and full-bodied, with a powerful mouthfeel and a hint of graphite, this is a deep rich, full-throttle, very sexy and opulent Rouget to drink over the next 15 or more years. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

Score: 93-/100Robert Parker

A solid core of fruit here, that is tight and dense. You have to look below the surface and find its true quality. Impressive structure and style. <b>jamessuckling.com</b>

Score: 92-93/100James Suckling

Tasted at the Syndicat de Pomerol. The Rouget 2010 is very ripe and precocious on the nose with macerated dark cherries, orange essence, blueberry and a warm fug of alcohol. The palate is full-bodied with grippy tannins, very good fruit concentration and admirable linearity towards the finish lending good focus and tension. This is a very fine Rouget, one of Pomerol’s ascending estates. <b>Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com</b>

Score: 91-93/100Neal Martin

Ripe, round and powerful. Plum and red berry notes. Rich and full but I prefer the balance of the '09. <b>Drink 2016-2025. James Lawther, decanter.com</b>

Score: 16.5-/20Decanter

Liqueurish. Very rich and exaggerated. This wine swaggers and broadcasts its new oak. Awkward. <b>jancisrobinson.com</b>

2018 En Primeur Release of Pomerol's Chateau Belle-Brise
The 2018 Bordeaux En Primeur campaign reached new heights this week with the surprise release of one of Saint-Emilion’s top estates - Chateau Angelus. As well as offering a pleasing reduction in price versus their last two vintages, this welcome surprise set the tone for potentially one of the most exciting En Primeur campaigns ever. Last week our first releases ...

Pomerol: A Tale of Two Vintages
We report from a visit by Pomerol Séduction, an organisation promoting eight top wines from the iconic Right Bank appellation in Bordeaux. On the tasting table were Bordeaux 2012s and 2015s - two very different vintages that both have stories to tell. As the scramble for this year’s En Primeur offerings from Bordeaux reached its climax last week, the FINE+RARE Team saw ...

Pomerol: Small but Beautiful
Bordeaux: the foundation of any cellar.  The greatest, and most famous wine producing region in the world.  The heart of fine wine production.  These are all arguable.  And, conveniently, there is rather a lot of it.  The average left bank chateau will have an annual production of up to 20,000 cases per year, and barrel cellars the size of football ...

A Pomerol Evening with Neal Martin
On Wednesday night we were privileged to have the company of Neal Martin at a small dinner in the private room of the brilliant Chez Bruce. The theme was, of course, Pomerol and Neal’s recently published book on the region. Wine and food first. The aim of the wine selection was to be eclectic rather than simply aiming for the ...

2014 Bordeaux Update - 21st MAY
The week has seen a number of releases, some working, some not. The big name on Wednesday was Léoville-Barton at GBP 429 per dozen in bond.  This is an excellent Léoville: tasting at this property is almost not necessary given the consistent quality here and, whilst this probably isn't a speculative buy, it is a wine that will give great ...
