2009 Poujeaux, Moulis

SKU #1111489 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark 7 Feb, 2019 – Stunning nose of cassis, plum and bitter chocolate. Real concentration and a great balance of ripeness, fine tannins and bright acidity drive the complex finish along at an astonishing clip. Delicious now, but will hold. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark I would definitely recommend getting hold of this wine to drink now. It has a lovely signature Moulis-Médoc character of juicy black fruits and nicely worked tannins. It's well balanced, with good freshness, and the beginnings of cigar box and leather. No need to wait to drink this. (JA)dfs Inner quote mark (2/2019)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Pretty tobacco, damp earth, cedar, leafy herbs, and darker fruits all emerge from the 2009 Château Poujeaux, a rich, medium-bodied, impressively concentrated Moulis. With rocking mid-palate depth and sweet tannins, drink this totally seductive 2009 over the coming decade. Inner quote mark (11/2020)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Cassis, blueberry, graphite and smoky oak aromas are lifted by a floral element. Broad, rich and enveloping, with a restrained sweetness to the pliant flavors of dark berries, spices and graphite. Layered, minerally and long, with firm, building tannins coating the front teeth. Really splendid density and texture for Moulis wine, and a great vintage for Poujeaux. This large chateau, among the finest properties in Moulis, was purchased in 2008 by Philippe Cuvelier, who also owns Clos Fourtet. The same team of manager Nicolas Thienpont and enologist Stephane Derenoncourt was responsible for superb 2009s at both estates. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2012)

90-92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Power and structure over extreme juicy fruits, with black plum skins, spice from wood and a firm underlay. (RV) Inner quote mark (8/2010)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2009 Poujeaux has a very pure bouquet with more red fruit than black, quite high toned with crushed violet scents emerging with time, almost Right Bank in style. The palate is medium-bodied with very supple tannin, and well judged acidity. A little heady in style with some warm alcohol towards the finish. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Poujeaux has a medium to deep garnet color and delivers expressive blackberry preserves, prunes, sautéed herbs and fragrant earth notes with hints of tobacco and fallen leaves. Medium-bodied with refreshing acidity and a chewy texture supporting the earthy flavors in the mouth, it finishes on a stewed tea note. Drinking well right now! (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

Blackberry, raspberry and warm fig ooze from this seamlessly textured, gentle and rich wine. This is plump and soft with no edges showing and no tannin peeking through the pillows of ripe, decadent fruit. Will age gracefully but this is delicious now.

The 2009 Poujeaux continues to impress every time I taste it whether at Bordeaux tastings or when dining with friends and family. The 2009 is a classic. The 2009 Poujeaux has stunning fruit and texture yet is finely detailed, elegant, and incredibly balanced. This drinks beautifully now and will lay down effortlessly for decades. Chateau Poujeaux was purchased in 2008 by Philippe Cuvelier, who also owns Clos Fourtet. Chateau Poujeaux is one of Bordeaux’s finest values and the 2009 is a total sleeper! Buy this by the case and don’t miss the Magnums.

One of my favourite inexpensive 09 Bordeaux bottlings. Classic, elegant, lovely purity of fruit. Accessible now but will also age for two decades plus.
