2020 Rouget, Pomerol (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1539606 93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Powerful, as Rouget often is, with a skilful push and pull between power and finesse. Big-shouldered and intense, with plenty of chocolate and liquorice, excellent quality. Conversion to organic farming begun in 2020. Harvest September 15 to 30. 30% new oak. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2021)

91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A rich, voluptuous Pomerol that does a lot right, the 2020 Château Rouget offers ample black cherry and currant fruit as well as notes of tobacco and chocolate. Rich, mouth-filling, and medium to full-bodied, it offers supple tannins, solid mid-palate depth, and a great finish. It’s worth pointing out that 30% of this wine was fermented with stems. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

91-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2020 Rouget was tasted from two half-bottles. Deep in color, it has an intense bouquet of black currant, tobacco and truffle shavings and an increasingly pronounced undergrowth scent. Compared to recent vintages that I have found a bit trop, this is much more focused and controlled. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannins and well-judged acidity, touches of dark chocolate infusing the black fruit. This is well balanced and fresh and though there is some new oak to be assimilated toward the finish, this is very promising Rouget that deserves 4–6 years in bottle. (NM) Inner quote mark (5/2021)
