2019 Château Rouget, Pomerol

Owned by the Labruyere family, a name more commonly associated with Burgundy, there is something almost Burgundian about this historical, much-loved estate. Using whole-bunch fermentation (as at Carmes Haut-Brion) gives this more lift and energy than some, while Edouard Labruyere is incredibly hands on - when we visited during the harvest a couple of years ago, he was in the middle of the sorting line. This is an estate to watch, where quality seems to be on a real upward trend. A well-priced Pomerol that you should secure while you can.
