On the nose, the wine reveals a bouquet of ripe and dried red berry fruit, including raisins, freshly picked raspberries, and blueberries. The enticing aromas are further enhanced by notes of potpourri perfume, adding a touch of elegance and allure. As you take your first sip, the wine coats your mouth with a firm grip of tannins, which are balanced by a bright and juicy aspect. The tannins provide structure and depth, while the delicate red fruits, perfume, and dark chocolate flavors add layers of complexity.

The 2019 Rouget is a full-bodied wine that exudes power and richness, yet it also displays a wonderful aerial style with a focus on balance and finesse. Although muscular and bold upon immediate tasting, the wine reveals its delicacy over time, showcasing its harmonious integration of flavors. The quality winemaking is evident in every sip, with the wine exhibiting great potential for aging.
