About Chateau Poujeaux:
Château Poujeaux has over the years been sought after by connoisseurs.
Former French president George Pompidou swore by it and served it at the Elysée palace!
In 2008, Philippe Cuvelier and his son Matthieu, who are already the happy owners of the Saint-Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classé Château Clos Fourtet, have taken over this lovely estate in Moulis en Médoc.
While ensuring the continuity of operations here, they are also injecting ome new energy
and lots of ambition into the property.
The Château Poujeaux vineyard
lies in one single plot to the north-east of Moulis,
on the gravel mounds of Grand-Poujeaux.
The majority of the estate’s vines
are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot,
while Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot
only account for 10% of the total.
The fruit from the different plots of this fine terroir
is managed separately so that
the character of each can be fully expressed, giving Château Poujeaux its unique quality. What a great terroir Poujeaux has! In the heart of the Medoc, near our own hearts,
this is a wine that we end up knowing by heart. A small estate, unlike any other. Poujeaux isn't just a wine,
it's a lot more. Poujeaux is really amazing and quite outstanding.
