1999 Poujeaux, Moulis

SKU #998328 88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full bright ruby. Brooding aromas of blackberry, minerals, licorice and oak spices. Quite primary yet generous in the mouth, with mineral and floral elements lifting the fruit. Firm, concentrated and stylish, with the sweet fruit of the vintage's best examples. This has terrific breadth in the middle palate and on the long finish. One to buy. Inner quote mark (5/2000)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This charming, full-bodied 1999 is a sleeper of the vintage. It reveals beautiful, sweet fruit redolent with notes of raspberries, black currants, and spicy wood. The wine is soft, velvety-textured, yet concentrated, with good delineation. It is a strong effort in 1999. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2002)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Aromas of black licorice, cherry and cedar. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fruity finish. Light, but pleasant. Best after 2004. Inner quote mark (3/2002)

K&L Notes

One of our top sellers the past few years has been Poujeaux. It’s a pleasure to drink wines that taste this good for such reasonable prices. The wine is dominated by delicious sweet, toasty dark fruit. Sweet and creamy. Vanilla notes. Sleeper! Very very good once again. More recently, 91 points Neal Martin: "Tasted at the 1999 horizontal at Bordeaux Index. Showing signs of maturity on the rim, the nose is more generous than the Bernadotte with blackberry, pinecones, a hint of peppermint and mown grass. Very good definition even if it does lacks some vigour. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, quite feminine on the entry although it firms up towards the finish. Touches of wild strawberry, raspberry, cedar and mint towards the elegant finish. Slips down the throat with ease. Lovely! Drink now-2015. Tasted June 2009."
