Rouget 2005

Chateau Rouget, Pomerol 2005 This wine shows the classic example of tolerated brett. There are Band-Aids competing with ripe fruits in the nose. With 30 minutes the fruit starts to strut into the open. The mouth features the same with a supple texture, rustic yet velvelty, with a juiciness to the fruit. The property is planted to 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. Michel Rolland consulting winemaker. Mis au chateau a Pomerol 13.5% $46.99 at Bottle Barn Chateau Rouget
