Winemaker's Notes

The wines of Chateau Poujeaux always have a color very strong, very profound. The subtle flavors, soft tannins and silky hope are never aggressive even in their youth. Power, charm, elegance and balance, perfectly characterize these wines. This success is due to the extreme rigor in the selection of tanks and the expertise acquired over three generations.

Critical Acclaim

"A fragrant, sunny, fruit-driven Bordeaux, this feels elegant and clean, stripped of all pretense. Nothing obstructs its pleasing richness and buttoned-down style. Accessible as a young wine, this will brighten a formal business dinner at a steakhouse. "
