Rouge 2009 Archived REVIEWS

The Wine Advocate - Neal Martin - February 2012

90 Points The Loudenne 2009 has a well-defined, open-knit but not diffuse nose that lets those vibrant red fruits really shine. The palate is well-knit, perhaps just a little to reliant on the oak, but has very good depth and vigour towards the harmonious finish. Nice purity here. Excellent.


Rouge 2005 Archived REVIEWS

Wine Spectator - James Suckling - March 31, 2008

90 Points "Delivers blackberry and pretty, toasty oak, with flowers. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, long finish of ripe fruit, espresso and a hint of licorice. Balanced and refined."


Rouge 2001 Archived REVIEWS

The Washington Post - Ben Gilberti - December 14, 2005

Recommended Bordeaux "Restrained and beautiful in a classic Medoc/Pauillac style, with notes of new oak. Very classy."

The Spirit Journal - F. Paul Pacult - September 2004

Recommended "For Francophiles comes this tasty, savory, dried fruit beauty with the Medoc design. Great price. Perfect with pork or roast turkey, either of which would accentuate the red berry richness."


Rouge 2000 Archived REVIEWS

Nat Decants - Natalie MacLean - January 07, 2006

90 Points An amazing wine for this price. Hedonistic aromas of leather, tar, mocha, spice and affluence. Château Loudenne is another exceptional value-priced Bordelaise producer whose fruit-forward, balanced libation would match beautiful with an afternoon luncheon. This winner from the excellent 2000 vintage would match well with roast lamb or prime rib.

Food and Wine - March 2005

Recommended Buy "This handsome cru bourgeois property is one of the Medoc's better-kept secrets. Its 200 bottling captures the depth and richness of this vintage... with pleasing notes of plum and coffee."

Washington Post - Ben Giliberti - September 15, 2004

Recommended "If you don't get a piece of the action, you'll be missing a chance to snag this momentous vintage at a modest price. At around $20, the Cru Bourgeois Chateau Loudenne 2000 provides many of the thrills of the $100 bottles, tasting much like one of the better Pauillacs of the vintage."
