2020 Château Rouget  (Pomerol) 93
Showing a depth of color, the lusciously textured, rich, silky, fresh wine is packed with ripe, black cherries, espresso, dark chocolate with touches of peppery spice and cigar wrapper in the endnote. With 3-5 years in the cellar, this is going to be just great. 92-94 Pts

2019 Château Rouget  (Pomerol) 93
Soft, silky, fresh and elegant, the richly-textured, medium-bodied layers of cocoa-covered black cherries, licorice, espresso, flowers and wet earth are already a treat to experience. Lush, supple and creamy on the palate, you can enjoy this early, or age it for more complexity. Drink from 2023-2039.

Dark in color, the wine pops with flowers, earth, black forest cake and licorice notes on the nose. Lush, supple and rich, the wine ends with silky plums, black cherries and chocolate. This is a top vintage for Rouget. 92-94 Pts

2018 Château Rouget  (Pomerol) 93
Showing much better in bottle than in barrel, the wine is full-bodied, rich, round and supple. Layers of silky, sweet, black and deep red fruits meld perfectly with spice, cocoa, licorice, espresso bean and wet earth. The fruit filled finish combines length, lift and finesse. Give this 3-5 years before popping a cork.

Black cherry and plums galore with espresso, licorice and spice box aromas that fuse well with the medium-bodied, soft, ripe berry palate. Give this 3-5 years for the oak to integrate and for the wine to gain in complexity. 90-92 Pts

Medium-bodied, forward and floral, with the right amount of licorice, plums, dark cherries and even darker cocoa, the wine is soft round and needs only a few years in the cellar.

Juicy bright cherries, plum and thyme create the main theme here in this medium-bodied wine. You'll find this is soft, round and polished with fruits that speak to you from start to finish.

Lush, silky, rich and concentrated, the wine is polished, fresh, and juicy with a silky textured blast of licorice, cocoa and red fruit filled finish. This super wine is a real value for Pomerol.

Silky, soft, polished and fresh, the ripe fruit sings here. The added nuances of flowers, anise and truffle along with dark cocoa add to the experience. This super wine is a real value for Pomerol.

I love writing about wines that start out as 91 Pts in barrel, and end up with 93 Pts in bottle. That's how it should work in a good vintage. Here, you find a rich, deep, concentrated wine, with silky tannins, elegance, balance, freshness and sweet, ripe black cherries infused with licorice. The lusciously textured finish is the frosting on the cake. The wine was made with 45% whole cluster fruit, which definitively had a positive impact.

2010 Château Rouget  (Pomerol) 92
As good, or even slightly better than the 2009, the wine is lush, plush and filled with sweet, juicy, ripe, black plums, cherries, truffle, licorice and dark chocolate. Rouget is making one of the best values in Pomerol today, which says a lot for wines from this increasingly expensive appellation.

Round, supple textures, fresh dark cherry, earth, fennel and cocoa scents and a fresh, sweet, plummy, rich, plush finish. This is another example of how great 2009 is for the entire appellation of Pomerol at all price points.

Floral, focused and fresh, the wine is medium bodied, finesse in style, with a sweet, black raspberry, red plum and licorice finish. Give this a few more years of age for the structured tannins to better integrate and soften.

Medium-bodied, fully developed, refined, soft, earthy, truffle laden wine with sweet plums, cherries, spice tobacco and earthy notes. This is probably a bit past its prime. So if you are sitting on any, drink up.

Sour, tart, acidic and filled with VA, the best part was the dried fruit component, and that was obviously not enough to make this wine worth drinking.
