A standout during the en primeur tastings that lives up to its initial promise now it's in bottle. Strong, confident flavours show clear Médoc character, with dark berry fruits, silky tannins, great balance and freshness. Lots of life ahead of it. Drinking Window 2022 - 2035 (JA)
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.
Supple-edged, with pretty notes of fresh earth, mulled plum and incense weaving together, showing subtle persistence on the finish. (JM)
The 2016 Poujeaux is fabulous. Rich, deep and beautifully layered, it has a level of pure intensity I don't recall seeing in the past. Succulent red/bluish fruit and silky tannins add to the wine's considerable finesse. Racy and succulent to the core, yet still very much medium in body, the 2016 delivers the goods. The blend is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. This is a terrific showing from the Cuvelier family and winemakers Stéphane Derenoncourt and Julien Lavenu. Don't miss it. (AG)
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)
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)
