Château de Rouillac 2014

Jane Anson

This property has the distinction of being the only estate in Pessac-Léognan where Eric Boissenot consults (the technical director is one of his childhood friends, which may help). His deft touch is at work – this has bright purple reflections, show the tight dark fruit and crisp tension of a promising en primeur sample, lean savoury tannins, careful extraction with oak (30% new) giving touches of smoky coffee beans to help add a little sprinkle of glamour. Attractive perky medium drinker.
