2015 Poujeaux, Moulis (Pre-Arrival)
Shows excellent depth of fruit with chewy and polished tannins. Full and very long. Gorgeous length.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Poujeaux is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. It has a high-toned, floral bouquet with kirsch and raspberry coulis notes, opulent for this Moulis, but it manages to retain control. The palate is chewy on the entry with mouth-coating tannin, solid in the mouth, brutish at the moment, although the finish does show satisfactory freshness, and is long and minerally. This will be intriguing once in bottle. (NM)
Subtle tea and sandalwood notes meld nicely with the core of lightly steeped red currant fruit. Features a gentle cocoa powder edge on the elegant finish. (JM)
Big, plummy but lifted Cabernet-Merlot flavours. Shows the usual richness of Poujeaux with more finesse and grip this year.
The 2015 Poujeaux is shaping up to be a huge overachiever in this vintage. Rich, layered and generous, the 2015 offers considerable near and medium term appeal. This is a strong showing from the Cuvelier family. Stéphane Derenoncourt and Julien Lavenu are the consulting winemakers. (AG)
