The richness and smoothness of a Moulis red wine

The estate

In 2008, the Cuvelier family, already owners of the Premier Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Émilion Clos Fourtet, acquired Château Poujeaux. Since then, this beautiful Médoc property has experienced a true renaissance. Managed by Mathieu Cuvelier and Christophe Labenne, with vinifications carried out under the watchful eye of oenologist-consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt, Château Poujeaux is today one of the finest references in the Moulis appellation on the Left Bank of Bordeaux.

The vineyard

Château Poujeaux 2014 is a Moulis wine that stems from a a 72-hectare single vineyard, located in the north-eastern part of the appellation. The vines are on average 30 years old and benefit from an exceptional location on the Günzian gravel outcroppings. This great terroir is perfectly suited to the Médoc grape varieties. From this harmony between terroir and grape variety are born great wines typical of the Moulis appellation, offering a great density and elegance.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (60%)

Merlot (35%)

Petit Verdot (5%).

Château Poujeaux 2014: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

An intense garnet colour with subtle purple hues.

Nose

An expressive, delicate and complex nose exudes intense aromas of black fruits, morello cherries and slightly more floral notes.

Palate

In the mouth, the attack is supple, the wine is dense and the tannins are beautifully silky. A great complexity, a nice delicacy and a very lengthy persistence give this wine a promising ageing potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Poujeaux has a slight mulchy scent on the nose that detracted from the clarity and complexity of the aromatics. The palate is quite structured with rather dry tannins, moderate weight but attenuating towards the pinched finish. This showed better in barrel and so hopefully it will improve in bottle. It just seems a bit lost at the moment. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
