    September 6, 2021 - 2009 Poyeaux seemed like a riper slightly less balanced version of the 2005.

    Bien opaque et sombre, un bord encore joyeux, une brillance qui contraste, une viscosité qui intimide, voilà qui s'annonce bien...
    Ce que confirme le premier nez, très ligérien, mûr, végétal aussi, énergique, classieux aussi! Epices, Poivron mûr/rôti, vieille fraise écrasée, poivre, sous-bois, fin cuir, violette, mûre, on est pas en reste.
    La bouche en rondeur, riche, sphérique, allie finesse, richesse, maturité et fraicheur, avec sur la finale une pointe de rectitude qui nous fait dire que, même si l'on est ravi de l'avoir gouté, il sera fabuleux d'élégance dans 10 ans, car la texture a tout pour évoluer vers la grandeur.

    May 16, 2021 - 6 huis in decanter. Bordeaux-like nose with earthy notes. In the mouth subtle and smooth, everything falling together, the earthiness, black fruit and animal notes, supported by good acidity followed by a long finish. Impressive wine, lacking a bit of power.

    May 15, 2021 - A tasting organised by my friend Loek (At his home): My first encounter with Clos Rougeard and a good one, starting shy and a bit fragrant, so i thought the wine was older than '09. With aeration however the wine grew; some cherries, recognizable cabernet franc, but not Bordeaux (more freshness in the backbone), a hint of mint, soft peppers, lovely balance and the aftertaste grew with more air.
    With this determination, although never tasted before, I guessed...Clos Rougeard.

    September 30, 2020 - Frais, Long, Très Profond, petite touche végétale au nez, du Grand Cab Franc sans aucun doute. J'ai tout de même préféré le 2011 qui était encore plus expressif que le 2009. Ce dernier est prêt a boire maintenant.
