Poujeaux 2000: Best QPR?

Post by mustafa camlica » Wed Feb 16, 2011 12:23 pm

Ch. Poujeaux 2000:

deep garnet and very young looking. almost no development at the rim. curranty aromas complicated by notes of tobacco,leather,dust and amaretto. it boasts compelling perfume at this stage of development. balanced by sweet fruit extract and a firm spine of acidity. finishes with chewy tannins,long. It has a bright future. Probably best quality/price ratio in Bordeaux today.

Yum! Sounds really delicious~ Although it does seem like a very difficult wine to acquire... I'm a little jealous now. Well, the wine that's on my highest QPR list is the 2005 Reignac (I got it for $17 a bottle). Should be pretty easy to locate. Try it and let me know what you think. At the mean time, I'll try and see if I can find this Poujeaux, it's from Moulis, correct?

Yes, it is correct. This is the Chateau late Baron Rotschild had mistaken 1953 vintage for Lafite.

To me, Poujeaux and Meyney are probably the two best value for money Médoc's around. They are robust, typical and great value. Meyney is Saint-Estephe, neighbour of Montrose. Ch Senejac is also very interesting to follow, a Haut-Medoc.

Late to the party with the 2000 Poujeaux, but I did buy 6 bottles of the 2009 Poujeaux. Anymore recommendations on great QPR Bordeauxs

Yes Tim, try 2005 Valrose from St. Estephe. To me, this wine rolls in as a solid 92 point wine, and it's under $30.

Need to try that Valrose then..... I like Dalem in Fronsac, Clos Floridene in Graves, Cantelys in Pessac, Dom de la Solitude and Goulee. At higher prices Giscours and Lascombes are very interesting , also Ferriere if you like classic elegance and style. Remember, I'm European, with a palate that is not too happy with too much extraction. Lilian Ladouys is also a constant positive surpriser from St Estephe for the last few years.....
