- Closure: Cork
This property has been on the qualitative high road for a number of years, and the 2012 continues that path. Deep ruby/purple, with wonderfully sweet, earthy, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit jumping from the glass, it is broad, opulent, beautifully textured and juicy. This is a sexy, lush, heady Pomerol to drink now and over the next 15 or more years. Full, long and impressive, there is no reason to defer your gratification with this beauty.
Robert M. Parker, Jr. - The Wine Advocate #218, April 2015
The 2012 boasts a deep blue/purple color along with a big, sweet nose of kirsch liqueur, lavender, balsam wood, truffles and lead pencil shavings. The complex aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, opulently-textured, fleshy wine that has more in common with a 2009 than most 2012s tend to possess. This outstanding sleeper of the vintage should drink well for 10-15 years.
Proprietor Jean-Pierre Labruyere has done a magnificent job of resurrecting Rouget despite the fact that this is not one of the best terroirs. Since Labruyere has had control, the wine has gone from strength to strength. It is a large vineyard by Pomerol standards (42 acres), and the final blend for the 2012 is 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.
Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate #206 April 2013
This is outstanding. Full to medium body, with pretty fruit and very integrated tannins. It lasts on the finish too. Texture in the tannins is so attractive here. Very well made.
