Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

Bubbling over with blackberry, cherry and spice, with a hint of coconut. Full-bodied and chewy, yet refined and well manicured. A silky texture that goes on and on. Big and tannic wine. A super effort from Poujeaux. 24,000 cases made.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
