2014 Poujeaux, Moulis (Pre-Arrival)
Balanced and fresh. Shows lots of asphalt and berry character. Full-bodied yet refined and gorgeous. Floral with tobacco. Stealth.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Château Poujeaux 2014 is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 35% Merlot. It offers blackberry and briary scents on the nose, a little disjointed at first but the aromas coalesce with time. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin. There is satisfying fruit concentration here, finely-tuned acidity and a really quite sophisticated, elegant finish. Classically lined Poujeaux that should settle at the upper end of my banded score.

The 2014 Poujeaux is an absolutely joyous wine. Plump, juicy and flavorful, it possesses striking depth. Dark stone fruit, spice, leather and tobacco give the wine an attractive savory profile. The 2014 could use a bit of time in bottle to settle down, but it is very nicely done. (AG)
Fleshy, with gentle tannins carrying the bitter plum, black cherry, loam and humus hints through the lightly toasted finish. (JM, Web-2015)
