2012

Very nice and deep purple colour. Black and red fruits with a delicate hint of coffee and liquorice on the nose. This wine is rather tight but tannins are fine and delicate. The structure of this wine is balanced by its nice harmony.

After a rather dry winter, April had been quite rainy, which delayed the usual vegetative cycle. Spring was rather wet but summer was hot and dry. The maturity of the grapes was sometimes reach late in autumn. 

48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc

2011

From the outset, the intense and nuanced red color gives confidence. Expressive and complex, the bouquet combines notes of spices (white pepper), toast and ripe red fruits. The freshness, present from the attack to the finish, underlies an ample, fleshy, aromatic palate (prune, almond) supported by tannins extracted with measure and by a well-balanced woodiness. Accuracy in this already tasty wine with certain potential.

50 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 40 % Merlot, 5 % Cabernet Franc 5 % Petit Verdot

Producer 

Château Poujeaux is set upon the magnificent gravel slopes of Grand-Poujeaux, a single unbroken parcel of land to the North-East of Moulis. Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (40%), the Médoc’s most famous grape varieties, are planted alongside Petit Verdot (5%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). The soil types and grape varieties are perfectly matched, giving rich, elegant wines.

The roundness and charm of Merlot is counterbalanced by the tension and energy of Cabernet Sauvignon. Petit Verdot, despite making up a small proportion of the blend, brings powerful structure and a rich aromatic palate. Finally, Cabernet Franc offers added complexity. Rigour and vigilance are keystones in a constant search for the optimal expression of this precious terroir.
