Tasting Notes

The 2019 Poujeaux has a very delineated, focused bouquet of blackberry, cedar, mint and light tea leaf scents, one of the most complex I have encountered from this great estate in recent years. The medium-bodied palate is fresh, vibrant and grippy, with slightly chalky tannins and a saline, persistent finish. Quite structured and broody, this Moulis deserves ample time in bottle. 2027 - 2055

Neal Martin, vinous.com, February 2022

A fleshy, dramatic rendition of this Moulis benchmark, the 2019 Poujeaux unwinds in the glass with a deep bouquet of blackberries and plums mingled with subtle hints of cigar wrapper, loamy soil and violets. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered, it's deep and seamless, with succulent acids, powdery tannins and a long, expansive finish. This has turned out brilliantly and numbers among the real sleepers of the vintage. Drink 2023-2045.

Solid as a rock this year with blueberries and crushed stones. Dried lavender, too. It’s medium-bodied, yet structured and long. Excellent.

James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, June 2020

Always a well-made, charming wine, the 2019 Château Poujeaux has classic Bordeaux notes of tobacco leaf and cedar as well as beautiful currant and plum fruits, a medium-bodied, rounded texture, good mid-palate depth, and ripe yet chewy tannins on the finish. Enjoy this satisfying, well-made Moulis over the coming 10-12 years.
