Wine Region:Bordeaux - France
Grape: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 35% Merlot.
Tasting notes: "The Château Poujeaux 2014 offers blackberry and briary scents on the nose, a little disjointed at first but the aromas coalesce with time. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin. There is satisfying fruit concentration here, finely-tuned acidity and a really quite sophisticated, elegant finish. Classically lined Poujeaux that should settle at the upper end of my banded score." Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate.
Expert Rating: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 90/100.
How to Enjoy: The wine of Chateau Poujeaux is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, and grilled dishes. Chateau Poujeaux is a perfect match with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms, and pasta as well as cheese.
About the winery: Chateau Poujeaux has over the years been sought after by connoisseurs. Former French president George Pompidou swore by it and served it at the Elysée palace!
In 2008, Philippe Cuvelier and his son Matthieu, who are already the happy owners of the Saint-Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classé Chateau Clos Fourtet, have taken over this lovely estate in Moulis en Médoc. While ensuring the continuity of operations here, they are also injecting ome new energy and lots of ambition into the property.
The Chateau Poujeaux vineyard lies in one single plot to the north-east of Moulis, on the gravel mounds of Grand-Poujeaux. The majority of the estate’s vines are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, while Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot only account for 10% of the total. The fruit from the different plots of this fine terroir is managed separately so that the character of each can be fully expressed, giving Chateau Poujeaux its unique quality. What a great terroir Poujeaux has! In the heart of the Medoc, near our own hearts, this is a wine that we end up knowing by heart. A small estate, unlike any other. Poujeaux isn't just a wine, it's a lot more. Poujeaux is really amazing and quite outstanding. Matthieu Cuvelier Owner-Director
