Scoring at the top of my range, this is one of those great, affordable beauties Bordeaux can produce.

The tannins are soft and there is plenty of juicy fruit in the finish. 93 Points

A touch of oak accompanies the dark red, earthy, tobacco-stained fruit. Concentrated, long, bright and fresh, the wine should age nicely and compete for one of the best value wines from the Left Bank in 2016. 92 Points

There is an earthy, blackberry character here, with round tannins that allows the character to shine through.

2015 Château Poujeaux  (Moulis en Médoc) 93

The ripe, dark fruits, truffle, licorice and smoky personality is just great. Full bodied, with jubilant, chunky, red fruits, ripe tannins and sweet, rustic cherries in the end note. 93 Points

This really came alive during the aging. Now, you find layers of ripe, sweet, rustic, but charming, juicy fresh cherries, wet earth, espresso and smoke. The wine has the flesh and raw materials to age and develop. 93 Points

2014 Château Poujeaux  (Moulis en Médoc) 90

Fresh, sharp, crisp, bright, red fruits, espresso, smoke and thyme open this medium bodied, earthy wine. The tannins are soft, and their is enough there to allow the wine to age and evolve. Give it at least 3-5 years before popping a cork. 90 Points

2009 Poujeaux shows the estate made a big jump in quality since it was purchased by the owners of Chateau Clos Fourtet in St. Emilion. Stephane Derenoncourt is lending his skills to the winery as well. The 2009 is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Ripe blackberries, cassis, olives, spice and pepper make up the perfume. This thick, rich, full bodied, powerful wine sould drink well young. 90-92 Pts

2008 Château Poujeaux  (Moulis en Médoc) 91

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 the Medoc, year after year. 91 Points

2006 Château Poujeaux  (Moulis en Médoc) 88

Fully mature, medium bodied, ready to drink wine that is more interesting on the nose, with its earthy, olive, tobacco, and spicy plum notes, than on the firm, strict, classic, tannic palate. 88 Points

2005 Château Poujeaux  (Moulis en Médoc) 90

Tobacco, smoke and cigar box on the nose, the wine is medium/full bodied, with a sweet and tart, dark, red berry finish that is ready to drink. However, there is no hurry as this should remain fun to drink for at least another decade or longer. 90 Points

Smoke, blackberry, stone, plum and fennel scents produce the aromatics. Medium/full bodied, with a fresh, zesty, tannic, spicy, black raspberry finish. Since the Cuvelier family took over the estate, the wines being made starting with the 2008 vintage are far better in quality. 89 Points

2001 Château Poujeaux  (Moulis en Médoc) 88

Well, fully mature was a few years ago, but there were still enough ripe red fruits packed with wet earth, tobacco leaf, smoke, cigar box, cedar, and thyme to make it interesting. The soft, earthy herb and tobacco touches to the red fruits were quite nice, even if the wine was not all that deep. If you have a bottle, drink up. 88 Points

2000 Château Poujeaux  (Moulis en Médoc) 90

Nice, inexpensive charmer, mature and ready to go, with its sweet, cherry, black raspberry, tobacco and earthy personality. Freshness and round tannins, with ample cherry in the finish. This is not a wine I'd hold for further evolution. 90 Points

1989 Château Poujeaux  (Moulis en Médoc) 85

This offers tobacco, spice, and cigar ash notes in the perfume. Light bodied and with a short, cherry filled finish, this wine needs to be opened in the near future. With the Culvieres as the new owners (the same family who owns Clos Fourtet in St. Emilion), I expect Poujeaux will begin producing much better wines than this one. 85 Points

1928 Château Poujeaux  (Moulis en Médoc) 89

I would have thought this wine was at least 30 years younger than its true age! Better on the complex nose, with its cedar, tobacco leaf, cigar box, herb, wet earth and bright red fruit personality, than on the still full-bodied, earthy, dark red fruit and cigar wrapper palate. surprisingly, there was still an amazing amount of density and fruit on the palate, however, the finish was just a tad short. Still, when you consider this was 91 years of age, WOW! 89 Points
