Clos Rougeard seems to be something of a semi-mytical entity given the paucity of information and wine that emerges from the anonymous gates in the Rue L'Eglise in Chacé just south of Saumur itself. The brothers Charlie and Nadi Foucault quietly get on with producing some of, if not, the best Cabernet Franc in the world leaving their admirers clamouring for whatever allocation they can get each year.

The estate further cemented its reputation in those pages by being rated the only 'Grand Cru Exceptionenel' (Revue du Vin de France Fevrier 2006 #498). The most up to date information on the web can be found on Chris Kissack's Wine Doctor site and, at the time of writing in June 2009, Jim Budd was threatening a round up of his visit to their cellar on his blogsite (http://jimsloire.blogspot.com/search/label/Clos%20Rougeard) Read less
