Tasting Notes

The 2006 Chateau Poujeaux has a pleasing bouquet with an abundance of lovely blackcurrant and raspberry fruit interlaced with cedar and tobacco notes. Its deep ruby,purple color, notes of incense, camphor, and spice box, and medium to full-bodied style are accompanied by excellent fruit intensity, purity, and length. The palate does not disappoint with good concentration, quite thick, chewy tannins and a masculine style. Harmonious with vibrant acidity and a graphite tinged finish.

About the Winery

The name ‘Château Poujeaux’ first appeared in 1806 but Terre de Poujeaux, situated in Moulis-en-Médoc, had existed since the Middle Ages. At that time it belonged to Latour Saint Mambert, now Château Latour, 1er Grand Cru Classé, Pauillac. During the 19th Century, the estate produced its first wines and became truly independent.

Previously divided up into three entities, it was only at the end of the 20th Century and thanks to the Theil family that Poujeaux’s structure and size were restored. The estate regained its historic form in 1956, unified with 100 hectares of which 70 hectares under vine. In 2008, the estate was acquired by the Cuvelier family, already owners of the famous Clos Fourtet, 1er Grand Cru Classé, Saint-Émilion.
