Vintage after vintage, the iconic Chateau Poujeaux estate run by the Cuvelier family offers a unique expression of the Medoc through wines that shine with complexity and offer a perfect balance between silkiness and density.
With a difficult, yet delicate 2017 vintage, the Chateau Poujeaux 2017 reveals the best of Moulis-en-Medoc, an appellation located on the Left Bank in the Bordeaux region. The estate’s vineyard was not spared the frosts that hit at the end of April 2017. The best parcels that escaped the frost were used in the Chateau Poujeaux 2017. This vintage highlights the efforts of the technical team, and makes this a “technical vintage”.
In a typical Medoc blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (62%) and complemented with Merlot (25%) and Petit Verdot (13%), the Chateau Poujeaux 2017 expresses the Chateau's philosophy. The three key elements that define this vintage style are the aromatic fruit freshness, elegance and balance. The palate has structured tannins that give a silky mouthfeel, and then it evolves to finish with a persistent length. The Chateau Poujeaux 2017 promises to be one of the most beautiful benchmarks in the Moulis-en-Medoc appellation with a style that brings fame to the estate.
