Chateau Poujeaux 2016

SKU:1516/16 Bordeaux - Moulis - Red - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 91-93

An aromatically complex red wine from Moulis-en-Medoc

Chateau Poujeaux is a 68 hectare vineyard located in the Moulis-en-Medoc appellation. The vines are 35 years old, on average, and planted on günzian gravel from the Garonne. Maturation occurs in barrels (30% are new) for 12 months. The 2016 vintage is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot.

The mild, dry winter gave way to a fresh spring with heavy rainfall, which delayed development. However, the beginning of June provided the perfect temperatures for flowering to take place. The warm, dry summer allowed the grapes to reach magnificent concentration levels and maturity. Harvest was from October 4th - 21st.

Chateau Poujeaux 2016 is well-concentrated and gourmet. The quality of the terroir has been able to express its potential, and give the wine a great aromatic complexity.



Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Poujeaux has an impressive bouquet with plenty of blackberry, briary and cigar box aromas that are very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin on the entry. This is a smoky Poujeaux with commendable depth and structure, a little more solid than recent vintages with good depth on the black pepper-tinged finish. The 2015 Poujeaux was very good, but this may well surpass that and achieve the level of some of the legendary wines from yesteryear.
