Chateau Poujeaux is situated in Moulis en Medoc which is in the heart of the vineyards of the Haut-Médoc, 3 miles from the two great appellation of Margaux and St-Julien. The vineyards are planted on the finest outcrops of günz gravel, which is the ideal soil for the Great Classified Growths of the region.
The vat room where this wine is made houses wooden vats, epoxy-resin lined concrete vats and stainless steel vats. They are all thermo-regulated to control the vinfication temperature. The Chjateau Poujeaux 2007 underwent 12 months of barrel-ageing. Half of the barrels are renewed every year. The wine was clarified by racking from barrel to barrel, and fining with egg whites. Château Poujeaux is not filtered or chilled, enabling the wine to keep all its richness.
Decanter gave this wine the following review and a score of 90 points in February 2017:
This is a rather lovely Médoc, if a touch more restrained that some others here. There is richness to the fruit, but it is tighter, with layers of bilberry and cassis and cedary oak, with attractive menthol notes on the finish. Ready to drink. - Jane Anson
