Maturity is a key issue at Chateau Rouget. Thus, the harvest date is carefully chosen in order to pick up the most balanced fruits. Harvest occurs in several passages in order to ensure an optimal maturity level.

Grapes are picked by hand and transported in small crates in order to prevent berries from being crushed.

With the same concern for quality, bunches are sorted a first time as soon as they reach the cellar. Then, once grapes are fully destemmed, they go through another double sorting table. Only the best grapes are kept for Chateau Rouget’s wines.
