A solid core of fruit here, that is tight and dense. You have to look below the surface and find its true quality. Impressive structure and style.

A big, full-bodied, fleshy effort, it exhibits abundant black cherry and black currant fruit interwoven with a dusty loamy soil/sandy note in the background. A much larger wine than I have tasted in the past, it will be fascinating to follow the evolution of this 2010 (as well as Rouget's 2009) given the intensity, power and richness. It should drink well for 12-18 years.

Tasted at the Syndicat de Pomerol. The Rouget 2010 is very ripe and precocious on the nose with macerated dark cherries, orange essence, blueberry and a warm fug of alcohol. The palate is full-bodied with grippy tannins... Tasted at the Syndicat de Pomerol. The Rouget 2010 is very ripe and precocious on the nose with macerated dark cherries, orange essence, blueberry and a warm fug of alcohol. The palate is full-bodied with grippy tannins, very good fruit concentration and admirable linearity towards the finish lending good focus and tension. This is a very fine Rouget, one of Pomerol's ascending estates.

Difficult to evaluate on the nose - this sample may not have been quite ready to show. It seemed disjointed, with awkward apple, raisin and earth aromas, and very primary, grapey flavors. Texturally, this wine seemed... Difficult to evaluate on the nose - this sample may not have been quite ready to show. It seemed disjointed, with awkward apple, raisin and earth aromas, and very primary, grapey flavors. Texturally, this wine seemed fine, with a nice luscious silkiness. Underwhelming considering the great wines this property has made in the recent past. Judgment reserved.
