This is one of the more mineral, earthy, and powerful Poujeaux expressions I've ever tasted with balanced fruit that really provides the foundation for some of the wines terroir driven flavors. The finish is leaner with more gravel and earth. Good stuff for those looking for Bordeaux beyond simple fruit.

For decades, I have been preaching the gospel of Poujeaux to anyone who would listen. I believe that these wines, given enough time in the cellar, will stand on the table with anything. This 1990 has been given that time in the cool cellars of one of our negociant partners in Bordeaux, and is not drinking absolutely beautifully. If you have been invited to a wine dinner where everyone else is bringing $200 bottles, you will not be out classed with this beauty from Moulis. It has integrated and gained complexity over the last 27 years, but still has excellent concentration and ripe Cabernet fruit. The finish is long, detailed and far more complex than many more expensive, famous bottles that I have had lately.
Drink from 2017 to 2030

Wow... Famous name, famous vintage, and pure deliciousness make this bottle a knock-out. I'm typically not as much of an "older wine" (savory, leathery) kind of guy, but I thought this was an impressive wine. The aromas are mellow, yet alive and lifted, filled with plum, blackberries, mint, graphite, vanilla, bell pepper, and leather. The palate is just as well supported; the oak held up nicely and definitely help this bottle retain its drinkability. Dark fruit flavors, forest floor, and cassis round everything up to a nice and easy finish.

Here is a wine that is absolutely ready to drink. We all know how beautiful 1990 was, and it shows here. The fruit is very much present, along with its silky tannins in this medium body Bordeaux. Absolutely perfect choice for an elegant dinner.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

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.
Country:

France

- 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.
