Light notes of flowers and chocolate powder across red berries. The palate has a smooth and elegant feel with a core of very juicy red-fruit flavor and a wrap of fine tannin. Drink or hold.

The 2017 Poujeaux has a generous, slightly smudged bouquet with cranberry, raspberry and cedar aromas, just a little greenness in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, dark berry fruit, black pepper and a little graphite. It just misses a sense of energy that I have found on the finest vintages of this Moulis, although there is a pleasant sappiness that develops.

Nez de fruits mûrs avec des notes balsamiques. Le corps se caractérise par une très jolie finesse et une superbe fraîcheur d’expression, il jouit d’un côté presque aérien qui lui sied bien.

The 2017 Poujeaux is bold, pleasantly rich and quite expressive today. Sweet red and dark cherry, white pepper and floral notes are front and center. Hearty tannins need time in bottle to soften a touch, that should not be a huge issue in another few years' time.

From the Moulis region in the southern part of the Médoc, the 2017 Château Poujeaux has a classic, pretty, red fruit-driven style as well as lots of spice and floral nuances, medium body, light tannin, and terrific purity. It’s quite likely the best wine in the appellation.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW - Wine Advocate

The 2017 Poujeaux is blended of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 13% Petit Verdot, aged for 16-18 months in French oak barrels (30% new). Medium to deep garnet-purple color, it has a pronounced nose of fresh blackcurrants, crushed black berries and kirsch with nuances of cedar chest, pencil lead and crushed rocks. Medium bodied, the palate has a good core of pure, expressive black fruits, framed by firm, rugged tannins and loads of freshness, finishing just a tad hard. Drinking Window : 2020 - 2029
