2015 Poujeaux, Moulis (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1253294 94 points James Suckling

 Suave, brambly mixed summer berry fruits take center stage on the nose with a very nicely layered palate carrying fresh bright berry flavors into an upbeat finish. Smart wine. Try from 2022.  (2/2018)

90 points Decanter

 Big, plummy but lifted Cabernet-Merlot flavours. Shows the usual richness of Poujeaux with more finesse and grip this year.  (4/2016)

90 points Vinous

 The 2015 Poujeaux is gorgeous and open-knit, with lovely fruit presence, soft contours and tons of near to medium-term appeal. Silky tannins add to the wine's inviting personality. The sweet red cherry and plum flavors have an extra dimension of richness and deepness in 2015 that is unusual, but that also adds to the wine's undeniable allure. This is a gorgeous wine from the Cuvelier family. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. (AG)  (2/2018)

Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2015 Château Poujeaux is a Cabernet Sauvignon dominated red that includes 42% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. It’s a medium-bodied, classic, workhorse styled beauty offering lots of currant and black cherry fruits, plenty of minerality, fine tannin and solid concentration. It has more density than most Moulis and will keep for 10-15 years.  (11/2017)

Wine Spectator

 A pretty wine, with floral notes out front followed by enticing plum and cherry compote accents. Light savory and tobacco hints gild the finish. Best from 2019 through 2025. (JM, Web Only-2018)

Another under $35 value from the great 2015 vintage in Bordeaux. Here the 50%+ of Cabernet brings out the red fruit and cassis aromas that follow to the palate. Great structure for the cellar but plenty of sweet, sexy red berry flavors. We always love this wine and it is even better these days under the team from Clos Fourtet.
Drink from 2020 to 2035

Poujeaux is, and has for a long time, been one of the most serious wines you can find in its price bracket. The balance and precision achieved from this hallmark vintage will ensure exceptional ageability for years to come, and remarkable drinkability right now. It has notes of red currants, raspberry coulis and cherry kirsch, with plush, ripe tannins and beautiful acid lift for freshness on the back end. It would be a great idea to make a spot for a case or two of this in your cellar.

Very fresh on the nose with red and black berries, spice, and cinnamon. Great fruit, medium bodied, and with firm tannins that will develop well. A superb vintage for Poujeaux.
Top Value!

2015 Poujeaux is a perfect example why this wine has been a top selling wine here for decades. Beautifully polished, ripe sweet fruit with classic structure. The kicker here is the exquisite balance this wine always possesses. A serious wine of great taste; along with Cantemerle a candidate for the best value in left bank Bordeaux wine!

I always find this wine in a masculine style. Dark black fruits, with lots of licorice in the mouth; the 2015 still has those characteristics but is a bit more open and approachable then I normally find it at this young stage. Ripe, sweet middle fruit are still followed by some grippy tannins, but this all should come together in the bottle.

A fine, elegant, well-balanced claret from a producer that has become the darling of the K&L staff. Along with Cantemerle, this is a wine I've started buying almost every vintage since 2009. The 50% of cabernet adds full-bodied structure, but the 40% of merlot gives a soft-fruited texture and finesse to the wine. Another fantastic value from Poujeaux and another wine I'll be buying at least a case of.

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
