    What a great deal and quite the surprise from one of Moulis's underappreciated estates. I've typically drunk Gressier Grand Poujeaux in its youth, enjoying the price to quality ratio from strong vintages like 2009 and 2010. This 1989, however, holds up impeccably with fleshy, grippy tannins, a rich body, and a finish that shows a balance of earth and subtle dark fruits. I had no idea these wines could hold up this well, which makes me think twice about some of the aforementioned bottles I still have in my cellar!

    This very good 1989 has all the virtues of well aged claret, and at a very fair price. The Gressier Grand Poujeaux vineyards are in Moulis, right between the more famous communes of St. Julien and Margaux. The wine borrows a little from both neighboring areas, with generous aromatics akin to Margaux and round, dark cassis Cabernet fruit akin to St. Julien. This fine claret has more complexity than one would expect from a cru bourgeois, with a particularly nice meaty, animal note on the long finish. I can't wait to have this at home with charcoal grilled ribeye and an old fashioned baked potato!
    Drink from 2017 to 2029
