The house on the property was razed in the late 18th century and replaced by the present-day manor, one of the most remarkable buildings in Pomerol.
Purchased in 1994 by the Labruyère family, whose winegrowing background in Burgundy goes back to 1830, Château Rouget has enjoyed a vigorous renewal. Reconsolidating the estate with the purchase of plots located on Pomerol’s upper plateau, Jean-Pierre Labruyère and his son, Édouard, provided Rouget with some of the best terroir in the appellation. With more than 18 hectares of vines (predominantly Merlot, but Cabernet Franc also plays a major role), Rouget is an ambassador for the elegance and finesse of wines from the best clay-gravel soil in Pomerol.
A new cellar was built to ferment grapes from each plot separately, and even from areas within plots. This makes it possible to fine tune the final blend. Thanks to meticulous work in the vineyard and precision winemaking, Château has received praise from wine lovers around the world in recent years.
