Château Rouget 2018 Pomerol
Deep ruby in color. Intense aromas of blackcurrant, black and red plums, clove, vanilla, and cedar, along with a gentle background note of wildflowers. Full-bodied and opulent on the palate, with fine-grained and well-integrated tannins, plentiful acidity, and flavors of black fruit, wood spice, freshly roasted espresso beans, toast, chocolate, and graphite that linger beautifully over a prolonged finish. True to its Pomerol roots, it is both dense and powerful.
97 Points! Blueberries, blackberries, elderberries, mushrooms and earthy notes. Spices as well. It’s full-bodied with an unctuous texture. Balanced and savory with a fine, chewy tannin structure. Flavorful finish with length. One of the best ever from here. Best after 2025. - JamesSuckling.com
