2012 Gressier-Grand-Poujeaux, Moulis

SKU #1267020 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 The team at neighboring Château Chasse-Spleen makes the wine here, giving the wine a sheen as well as enhancing its firm structure. Big tannins parallel black fruits in a promising mélange of flavors. It will age; drink from 2018. (RV)  (5/2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from the owners of Château Chasse Spleen, this deep ruby/purple cru bourgeois offers sweet blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, moderate body, and an earthy, spicy finish that is slightly angular. Drink it over the next 10+ years. (RP)  (4/2015)

Wine Spectator

 Pretty, with soft plum and mulled currant fruit, lined with a supple, slightly loamy structure and backed by a tobacco note on the finish. A good effort for the vintage. (JM, Web-2015)

Another perfect example of 2012 vintage. Bright lifted fruit, plums, cassis and blackberries. The palate follows the nose, along with notes of vanilla, and tobacco. It is medium body, and the acidity matches really well the lifted fruit. It is drinking well now, and will still for at least another 10 years or so.

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 M├ędoc 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.
