2014 Poujeaux, Moulis

SKU #1301139 91 points James Suckling

 Quite a dark and mellow wine with generous dry tannins and plenty of concentration.  (2/2017)

90 points Vinous

 The 2014 Poujeaux is an absolutely joyous wine. Plump, juicy and flavorful, it possesses striking depth. Dark stone fruit, spice, leather and tobacco give the wine an attractive savory profile. The 2014 could use a bit of time in bottle to settle down, but it is very nicely done. (AG)  (2/2017)

 Deep crimson. Attractive, almost Margaux-like perfume. Real polish with vigour and fruit on the mid palate. Massive energy and persistence. Well done!  (4/2017)

Compared to the warm, layered 2009 this seems compact, tense and elegant. The 2014 may be a bit coiled for Poujeaux but it is vibrant, packed and will age beautifully into a sumptuous and complex bargain. Its unlikely you will pull a better $30.00 bottle of Bordeaux out of you cellar in 5 or 10 years.

This is one of the very best values in cellar worthy wine in the entire store. We tasted this along side the 1998 vintage, which has aged effortlessly, and it rammed home the point of just how wonderfully Chateau Poujeaux does with time. This has the perfect combination of cassis fruit and classy Bordeaux earth that excites me. It is a firm, serious wine with plenty of structure for the long haul. If you have children born in or an anniversary in 2014, I would say that this is a must buy. Wine of this sort of class and length are almost never sold at such a reasonable price!
Drink from 2024 to 2044

I love Poujeaux in almost any vintage. One of the better values in all of Bordeaux. This 2014 has plenty of cassis aromas and flavors. Quite sweet on the palate and a lingering finish. At under $30 it is a steal.
Drink from 2017 to 2030

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.
