2014 Château Pouget Margaux Wine Tasting Note


2014 Château Pouget  (Margaux) 87

Medium-bodied, fresh, bright, earthy and crisp, with an earthy, cedar and tobacco slant, the wine is more interesting on the nose than on the herbal, leafy, red berry palate and finish.

When to Drink Chateau Boyd Cantenac, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Pouget can be enjoyed on the young side with decanting. Young vintages can be decanted for an average of 1-2 hours, give or take. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Chateau Pouget is usually better with at least 5-9 years of bottle age. Of course that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau Pouget offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 10-20 years of age after the vintage

Serving Chateau Pouget, with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips

Chateau Pouget is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Pouget is a perfect match with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta as well as cheese.
