Winemaker Notes

This vintage is a harmonius blend of ripe and well-concentrated Merlots, completed by the power of the Cabernet Sauvignon and balance of the Petit Verdot. In the mouth, the wine is supple and straightforward. The density is balanced by the elegance and the finesse. This bright wine should delight.

Blend: 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling

A dense, layered red with blackberry, tar, asphalt and spice character. Medium-to full-bodied with wonderful, polished and creamy tannins. Chewy and fine. Potentially one of the best in a long time.

Barrel Sample: 94-95

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Owned by a member of the Cuvelier family, this estate has produced a ripe, juicy wine bright with black currant and rich with generous tannins. The future is good for this carefully structured wine.
Barrel Sample: 92-94
D 92
Decanter
Good depth of colour to the fruit, deep plum, with attractive fresh fruit aromatics. Confident tannic frame with acidity and black fruits - all the elements to ensure it will age. There isn't the richness of the fruit that you will find in 2016 but it is full of personality and easy to recommend. One of the more successful wines from Moulis in the vintage. Lots of tannins, and a point of bitterness on the close of play that needs to be carefully handled during ageing.
Barrel Sample: 92

Chateau Poujeaux, France
Chateau 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 Chateau 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 Chateau 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 Chateau 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. Matthieu Cuvelier Owner-Director
