(From 2008 Vintage) Truffle, earth, cassis, licorice, smoke and oak aromas pair well with the medium/full bodied, soft textured, spicy, cassis filled finish. Poujeaux is a clear contender for one of the best Bordeaux value wines.
(From 2010 Vintage) The perfume is filled with boysenberry, earth and mocha. In the mouth, the wine offers spicy, chocolate covered cassis, round textures and tannins.
Wine Spectator"Best Poujeaux in decades. Fabulous richness and fruit, yet extremely refined in texture. Harmony through and through. Intense blackberry, cherry and violets, with a hint of oak. Full-bodied, with loads of ultrafine tannins. Goes on and on. Best after 2002. (27830 cases produced)"
DecanterRating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Round, ripe fruit palate with good tannins and structure.
