Ch. Rouget is one of the oldest properties in Pomerol - legend has it that its vineyards were planted by ancient Romans; archived documents date back to the 1700s. Ch. Rouget was purchased by the Labruyere family in 1982, who also own vineyards in Beaujolias, Burgundy and Champagne. The wine is vinified in a combination of wood vats and temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks and aged in French oak barrells (50% new) for 15-18 months.
