Description

Château Rouget history began several centuries ago. Already identified at the end of the Roman Empire, Château Rouget's terroirs were at that time merged with St Emilion's ones.

Château Rouget appears in archives and land register from 1700 and is considered as one of the first official Pomerol Crus. This period corresponds to the building date of the splendid house symbolizing the estate, belonging then to the Bayonne Family. The last family member involved in the estate, Pierre Bayonne, was also mayor of Pomerol during the First Empire. As a talented winemaker, he used Chateau Rouget as a perfect display for his skills.

The Labruyère Family, who has owned Rouget since 1992, follows the same target. For more than 20 years, they try hard to place Rouget among Right Bank leaders.

The estate is now considered by critics and amateurs as the winery which has made the most consistent progress across the appellation, vintage after vintage.
