Marks and reviews
On the Grand Poujeaux plateau, Château Branas Grand Poujeaux is located between two Médoc grand crus. This property has been owned by Julien Onclin since 2002.
Château Branas Grand Poujeaux 2022 is a Moulis wine from a 25-hectare vineyard. The vines are about 32 years old and are planted on Garonne gravel.
2022 is a historic year because of its summer drought, offset from mid-August onwards by restorative rains and alternating hot days and cool nights - ideal conditions for perfect ripeness on all the plots.
Winemaking and ageing
Manual harvesting in crates. Manual and mechanical sorting of the harvest before and after destemming. Cold maceration for 6 days. Gravity fermentation of whole grapes. Aged in barrels (50% new, 45% one wine) and amphorae (5%).
Château Branas Grand Poujeaux 2022 is a blend of Merlot (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (35%) and Petit Verdot (5%).
