2014 Moulis, Cru Bourgeois from Bordeaux.
The harvests took place, in excellent conditions, from October 3rd to 14th for Merlot, from the October 20th to 22nd for Cabernet Sauvignon and on October 20th for Petit Verdot. The 2014 Cru Bourgeois Branas Grand Poujeaux is 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. The 2014 vintage displays a deep red colour. On the nose, this Moulis offers lovely aromas of ripe slightly spicy red berry. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, well-balanced, but also ample. The lingering finish is marked by already melted tannins.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Branas Grand Poujeaux has a concentrated, quite showy bouquet with ample black cherry and sloes, although it is missing a little delineation and crispness in the process. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, clean and pure with black cherries, red plum and a touch of Xmas cake. It is nicely proportioned and caressing on the finish, a Moulis I think will show better within the first 5-7 years of its life. Tasted September 2016.
