    (50% cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot and 5% each petit verdot and cabernet franc): Bright ruby-red. Cassis, blueberry, graphite and smoky oak aromas are lifted by a floral element. Broad, rich and enveloping, with a restrained sweetness to the pliant flavors of dark berries, spices and graphite. Layered, minerally and long, with firm, building tannins coating the front teeth. Really splendid density and texture for Moulis wine, and a great vintage for Poujeaux. This large chateau, among the finest properties in Moulis, was purchased in 2008 by Philippe Cuvelier, who also owns Clos Fourtet. The same team of manager Nicolas Thienpont and enologist Stephane Derenoncourt was responsible for superb 2009s at both estates.

    Ripe and forward, with a slightly soft edge to the plum sauce, anise and blackberry jam flavors, followed by light toasty spice notes that firm up the finish a bit. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

    The final blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot was cropped very low at 35 hectoliters per hectare. Deep purple, with a nose of subtle smoke, graphite, blueberry and black raspberry fruit as well as some spring flowers, in the mouth a touch of oak makes an appearance, but the wine is full-bodied, rich, inky and unctuously textured due to the high glycerin and alcohol that hits 14% plus. This beauty should drink well for up to two decades.

    Very bordeaux in its savoury, dry fruit style. On top of that, a touch of vanilla sweetness. Firm, slightly chewy and a savoury dry aftertaste. Lots of savour. Very good. (JH)

    One of my first tastings of the 2009 Bordeaux. This is quite atypical. Full bodied, but very soft for being so young. Mulberries and toast. Surprisingly fine tannins on the finish. Very drinkable now.
