Chateau Poujeaux 2007 - February 2017 Decanter review
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 appellations of Margaux and St-Julien. The name ‘Château Poujeaux’ first appeared in 1806 but Terre de Poujeaux, situated in Moulis-en-Médoc, had existed since the Middle Ages. During the 19th Century, the estate produced its first wines and became truly independent.
In 2008, the estate was acquired by the Cuvelier family, already owners of the famous Clos Fourtet, 1er Grand Cru Classé, Saint-Émilion. Won over by the quality of the wines and recognising the potential of the terroir, the Cuvelier family have brought a decidedly modern touch to Poujeaux, raising its profile to place it among the best-loved fine wines of Bordeaux. Today, Matthieu Cuvelier and Christophe Labenne co-manage Château Poujeaux with enthusiasm and a determination to perpetuate and transmit Château Poujeaux’s family and team spirit. The vineyard and winery teams follow the technical advice given to them by their esteemed colleague, Stéphane Derenoncourt.
The wines of Château Poujeaux always have a very deep, rich colour. The aromas are subtle, the tannins soft and silky and never aggressive even in their youth. Power, charm, elegance and balance characterize these wines perfectly. Château Poujeaux is a classic that will delight many wine enthusiasts, as it perfectly represents the Médoc. The 2007 vintage is very supple and light. This wine is stamped with tradition, innovation and pleasure.
"Round and juicy with lots of charm. Quite long." Jancis Robinson
