    The charm of a deep and dense red Grand Vin from Moulis-en-Medoc

    A magnificent property located on the left bank of Bordeaux, Chateau Branas Grand Poujeaux fully embodies the excellence of Moulis-en-Medoc.

    Made from a blend of Merlot (70%), Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) and Petit Verdot (5%), the Chateau Branas Grand Poujeaux 2018 offers a sublime expression of the terroir of Moulis-en-Medoc. The aromatically pure bouquet reveals beautiful notes of ripe black fruit, chocolate and hints of herbs. On the palate, the wine displays a great and powerful texture with beautifully crunchy fruit. The fine-grained tannins coats the palate, which stretches with purity and freshness into a remarkably long finish. A very nice vintage of Chateau Branas Grand Poujeaux, harmonious and promising a beautiful evolution in the bottle.

    This 9.78-hectare vineyard is situated in the town of Moulis-en-Médoc on the Left Bank of Bordeaux, where it is nestled in between Château Poujeaux and Château Chasse-Spleen. From the lieu-dit Grand Poujeaux, the blend is 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. The wine has 14.5% alcohol and is aging in 60% new and 40% second year barrels. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Branas Grand Poujeaux opens with scents of redcurrant jelly, fresh blackberries and ripe plums with hints of chocolate mint and spice cake. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with vivacious red and black fruits, framed by rounded tannins and finishes spicy.
