Chateau Rouget 2001 Pomerol

chateau-rouget-pomerol-2001Tasted this at the first WanderCurtis board meeting on Sunday 11 October 2009.
Complex and smokey nose with classic spice and fruity cassis. Delicious! Baked tarts, more spice and long tasty finish.

The 2008 is, or was, en primeur for about £240 in bond, and is therefore a fantastic value Pomerol. Sadly I didn’t taste this one at the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux (UGC) tastings in April, but in general the right bank wines were very good.
(Justerini & Brooks are still selling @ £220 a case in bond – anyone want to split one? Kiran)

The 2001 has plenty of life left and is now £35 per bottle at The Wine Society. Sadly, I only bought a few bottles a couple years ago at £26!
