2010 Poujeaux, Moulis (1.5L)

SKU #1123681 92-93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Love the fruity and chocolate character here, with lots spices and nutmeg. Full and velvety with soft tannins and a long finish. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

91 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full red-ruby. Bright aromas of dark raspberry, licorice, minerals and espresso are lifted by a floral high note. Juicy, spicy and sharply delineated, with excellent energy to the ripe, complex flavors of dark berries, lead pencil and spices. This very fresh wine shows a very firm spine to support a leisurely evolution in bottle without coming across as austere today. An excellent and serious Poujeaux. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Dark and enticing, with a subtle smoky frame around the core of mulled plum, black currant and blackberry fruit. The long, graceful finish is inlaid with flecks of charcoal, black tea and singed sandalwood. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2013)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 89-91 Solid, chunky wine, with a fine juicy element showing through in the aftertaste. It has weight, structure, a dense texture, and balance. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Made of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet colored 2010 Poujeaux features notions of sweaty leather, baked plums and crème de cassis with hints of sautéed herbs and tobacco. Medium-bodied, the palate is a little lean and chewy, with an herbal lift on the finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep ruby. Pure, soil-driven aromas of raspberry, blackcurrant, spices and crushed rock are lifted by a captivating floral element. Sweet, dense, and spicy on entry, then shows an enticing restrained sweetness and good verve to its red and black fruit flavors. Finishes with substantial but noble tannins and very good length, with a persistent minerality. (ID) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

K&L Notes

90 points Robert Parker for Wine Advocate: "The final blend in this vintage was 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, tipping the scales at 14% natural alcohol. The wine is outstanding. Rich black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with some graphite and floral notes are followed by an opulent, fleshy, full-bodied wine with impressive concentration, texture and length."

Bordeaux insiders usually snap up our allocation of Chateau Poujeaux before it touches the shelf. It is a property that makes serious wine every year and is a great property to collect a vertical from. The 2010 Poujeaux, Moulis is true to form, and a great cellar candidate. It is composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petite Verdot. When I first tasted this wine in Bordeaux during the enpremieur campaign in 2011, I found it very elegant and laid back next to its peers. Tasting it again among 2009’s showed me just how much structure these 2010’s have- it is a powerhouse! It has an opaque, black-purple color and strong currant and cola Cabernet flavor wrapped tightly to its high acid and high tannin spine. If you have room in your cellar, this is a spectacular deal. If you are looking for something to drink in the next couple of years, keep looking!
Drink from 2020 to 2040
