2016 Poujeaux, Moulis

SKU #1427431 92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Ripe, full and explosive with a big tannic frame. Expressive dark fruit aromas and flavour. Broad palate, tannins present but finely etched. Persistent. (JL) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Blackberry, blueberry and orange-peel aromas follow through to a full body with a solid core of fruit and a fresh, tangy finish. The hazelnut and walnut undertones add to the complexity. Drink in 2021 and onwards. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A restrained style, but with a tasty core of juicy plum and red currant fruit that melds with light mulling spice, black tea and sanguine notes. There's a dusting of cedar on the finish. Drink now through 2028. (JM) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark An outstanding Moulis made with consulting help from Stéphane Derenoncourt, the 2016 Château Poujeaux offers up a rock star, medium to full-bodied, layered profile as well as pretty notes of ripe black fruits, graphite, violets, and background oak. Give this sleeper 2-3 years of bottle age and it will impress for a decade or more. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Poujeaux has turned out beautifully. Ripe, generous and deeply layered, the 2016 has so much to offer. A varietal Cabernet Sauvignon note give the dark red/purplish berry fruit an attractive floral/savory upper register that adds striking nuance as well as character. This is a superb vintage for Poujeaux. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Deep crimson. A rather distinctive aroma with something like smoky bacon. Dark and savoury. Very chewy and only just enough fruit to keep the tannins apart but give it time. Drink 2024-2036. (JH) Inner quote mark (1/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Poujeaux is scented of fried herbs, tar and earth with baked plums and a waft of rocks. The palate is medium-bodied, firm, chewy and herbal. (LPB) Inner quote mark (1/2018)
