Château Poujeaux Moulis 2009Regular price €65.00
Intense, inky colour and controlled, fruity full body. Powerful tannins will ensure successful aging for fifteen or twenty years to come.
Black red, very rich and spicy, even exotic berry fruit, good smooth rich flavours backed by firm ripe tannins, lots of depth and good long-term.
(Steven Spurrier, Decanter April 2010)
Very dark. Scented and quite plush and rich and fragrant. Lots of pleasure and very ripe but not overripe.
(Jancis Robinson MW, jancisrobinson.com April 2009)
Deep purple, with a nose of subtle smoke, graphite, blueberry and black raspberry fruit as well as some spring flowers, in the mouth a touch of oak makes an appearance, but the wine is full-bodied, rich, inky and unctuously textured due to the high glycerin and alcohol that hits 14% plus. This beauty should drink well for up to two decades.
The finest wine I have tasted from Poujeaux over the last 33 years, the 2009 is the second vintage under the ownership of the Cuvelier family, who made the absolutely monumental 2009 Clos Fourtet. This large vineyard of over 100 acres has always had a relatively lofty reputation for the best wine of Moulis. The consultants on the 2009 were Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt, and they have produced a blockbuster Poujeaux that certainly qualifies as one of the sleepers of the vintage it is a wine to seek out, as it is reasonably priced.
