- With a grape-growing history that dates back to the Romans and an chateau lineage that is documented in a land register from 1700, Chateau Rouget walks the walk of a classic Pomerol estate. The winery has been in the hands of the Labruyéres (of Moulin-a-Vent fame) since 1992. Longtime consultant Michel Rolland employs some whole berry and 45% whole cluster fermentation for freshness and complexity.
