I adored Poujeaux back in the decade of the 1980s, when it was one of the greatest steals to be found on the Left Bank, and the 1985 showed beautifully at our big tasting of the vintage here in New York in October. The bouquet is deep, complex and utterly classic for this fine Moulis property, wafting from the glass in a mix of cassis, cigar ash, incipient notes of chipotle peppers, a touch of coffee and a topnote of graphite. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, complex and beautifully tangy, with a fine core of fruit, melting tannins and outstanding focus and grip on the very long and vibrant finish. I really love the backend energy of this wine, which is now at its apogee, but which still has decades of life ahead of it. This was truly a wine back in the day, before Stéphane Derenoncourt was brought in (IMO) to screw up the proceedings. (Drink between 2014-2035)
A firm, tightly packed Bordeaux. Spicy, slightly herbal aromas with solid fruit flavors that fight to the front. Tobacco and cedar notes add complexity.
