Château Rouget 2018

Château Rouget 2018

80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc. Deep glass-staining ruby colour. A very pretty nose of Parma violets and bright raspberry, with bitter cherry beneath. The palate is supple and inviting, with red cherry and sweetly fruit-coated tannins, finishing crunchy. Lifted, fresh acidity. Fantastic – and continues to be a bargain.    Picked 15th September to 3rd October. 14.5% abv. Yields were 36hl/ha. Almost 30% whole bunch vinification, exclusively on the Merlot. 4,000 cases have been made in 2018.
