2017 Poujeaux, Moulis (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1356352 92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Right from the nose this has rich, deep cassis and dark fruit notes, as well as a lovely juicy vibrancy through the palate. There are firm tannins that have some vibrancy to them. Although it’s not as persistent in structure as in 2016 and 2015, this is an extremely successful wine in the 2017 vintage. Aged in 33% new oak. A yield of 26hl/h, so there will be reduced volumes – an estimated 140,000 bottles this year. Fortunately the gravelly heart of the vineyard was not affected by the frost. There is an austerity to the tannins but it's still hugely enjoyable. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Light notes of flowers and chocolate powder across red berries. The palate has a smooth and elegant feel with a core of very juicy red-fruit flavor and a wrap of fine tannin. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Focused and pure, with unadorned cassis, cherry, plum pit and chalky mineral notes working in unison. The finish stretches out nicely, showing a violet echo. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. (JM, Web-2020) Inner quote mark

88-91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Poujeaux is soft, fruity and forward, all qualities that are best enjoyed over the near and medium term. Super-ripe red berry, spice and floral notes are all fused together in this racy, open-knit Moulis. Above all else, the 2017 is beautifully persistent, deep and long. Frost took out some of the lower lying parcels. As a result, the wine is heavier on Cabernet Sauvignon and emerges from the core parcels on the estate. In 2017, Poujeaux is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot, which is more Cabernet than in the past, a result of frost damage. Tasted two times. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2018)
