Chateau Poujeaux 2019

Chateau Poujeaux 2019

Ships in 2-3 business days.
A deep garnet hue with brilliant bright purple glints. Intensely aromatic with notes of violets, blackcurrant, flint and cigar-box. The entry is homogeneously velvety smooth. The tannins are silky. Great minerality, beautiful finesse and elegance. Outstanding length of flavor.

A fleshy, dramatic rendition of this Moulis benchmark, the 2019 Poujeaux unwinds in the glass with a deep bouquet of blackberries and plums mingled with subtle hints of cigar wrapper, loamy soil and violets. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered, it's deep and seamless, with succulent acids, powdery tannins and a long, expansive finish. This has turned out brilliantly and numbers among the real sleepers of the vintage. Best After 2023.

This dense wine is full of great potential. It shows rich tannins and concentrated black fruits contained within a restrained framework and finished with lively acidity. The wine will certainly age well.
James Suckling: 93
Very attractive chocolate, red-chili and cedar aromas and flavors. Lavender, too. Medium body with firm, polished tannins and a caressing finish. Pretty texture to this. It will be ready sooner than some. Try after 2024.

The 2019 Château Poujeaux showed beautifully, with classic Médoc notes of red and black currants, sweet tobacco, spice, and some floral and cedar nuances. With medium-bodied richness, supple tannins, and a great mid-palate, this thoroughly satisfying, impeccably made 2019 will keep for 10-15 years. Best After 2022.
