Le Carillon de Rouget is the second label of Château Rouget.

Region: Bordeaux


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.
At the end of the 19th century, a classification of Pomerol wines placed Rouget among the top five estates of the appellation. This recognition stems from the remarkable constancy showed by consecutive owners of the estate, who all worked hard to produce iconic wines.
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 terroirs dedicated to Le Carillon de Rouget are more aerial than the ones selected for Château Rouget.

Composed on the surface of gravel and clay. Gravelly hilltops rub shoulders with clayey-gravelly terraces.
The composition of the soils, combined with good exposure, provides all the typicity, elegance and finesse of the wines of Château Rouget.


Average age of vines: 20 years
Vineyards are sustainably farmed, using practices such as cover crops and ploughing.


Manual harvest, in small 20kg crates. Each plot is harvested individually in order to ensure optimal ripeness of the entire crop. Grapes are then sorted carefully.

Grapes from different parcels are vinified separately in stainless steel tanks, then aged in oak barrels (second fill) for 14 months. This vintage was bottled on a fruit day according to the lunar calendar, to allow the wine to express itself fully.


Fragrant floral, ripe blueberries, toasted aniseed and fennel on the nose. Elegant and layered. The same aromatic personality flowed to the clean palate. Good level of energy on a medium-bodied structure, leading to a bed of fine tannins and spiced fruity notes. 
Perfect with a grilled filet mignon.
