International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89(57% cabernet sauvignon, 36% merlot and 7% petit verdot) Medium ruby. Black cherry and a floral perfume on the ripe nose. Round and rich, but with a firm edge of acidity giving the wine shape. Offers a restrained sweetness. Solidly structured but not hard. Finishes with palate-dusting tannins. Another very good performance by this consistent property.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: May/June 2007
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 13Really pretty black. Lightly floral nose, then a bit of savour. Light and then a bit green. Gawky.Author: Jancis Robinson
Wine Advocate | Rating: 91Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Chateau Poujeaux has an attractive bouquet with plenty of lovely blackcurrant and raspberry fruit interlaced with cedar and tobacco notes. The palate is medium-bodied with good grip in the mouth, impressive substance and a tightly-coiled, saline finish that suggests this might surpass expectation. It certainly did mine. One to look out for. Tasted January 2016.Author: Neal Martin

Located in Moulis, a Medoc commune without any classed growth estates, Chateau Poujeaux is one of the top properties in this tiny region. Designated as a Cru Bourgeois estate, Chateau Poujeaux maintains 52 ha. of vineyards which sit on a solid gravel foundation. The vineyards are comprised of approximately 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot, with an average vine age of 35 years. All fruit is harvested by hand, and the wines are aged in 50% new and 50% neutral oak barrels for up to one year.
Located in the southwest of France, Bordeaux is the single largest fine-wine-producing region in the world, with more than 15,000 growers spread over 57 appellations and more than 700 million bottles produced annually. The region boasts a two-thousand-year winemaking history and some of the wine world's most recognized and highly sought-after names. Red Bordeaux blends comprise eighty percent of production, but dry and sweet whites are also well-known. The region is divided into the Left and Right Banks (of the Dordogne River); Cabernet Sauvignon prevails in the former and Merlot in the latter.
