2010 Poujeaux, Moulis
Aromas of blueberries and raspberries with hints of flowers. Full body, with fine tannins and a clean, fresh finish.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Full red-ruby. Bright aromas of dark raspberry, licorice, minerals and espresso are lifted by a floral high note. Juicy, spicy and sharply delineated, with excellent energy to the ripe, complex flavors of dark berries, lead pencil and spices. This very fresh wine shows a very firm spine to support a leisurely evolution in bottle without coming across as austere today. An excellent and serious Poujeaux. (ST)
Solid, chunky wine, with a fine juicy element showing through in the aftertaste. It has weight, structure, a dense texture, and balance. (RV)
Dark and enticing, with a subtle smoky frame around the core of mulled plum, black currant and blackberry fruit. The long, graceful finish is inlaid with flecks of charcoal, black tea and singed sandalwood. (JM)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The final blend in this vintage was 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, tipping the scales at 14% natural alcohol. The wine is outstanding. Rich black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with some graphite and floral notes are followed by an opulent, fleshy, full-bodied wine with impressive concentration, texture and length. (RP)
