2018 Chateau Poujeaux
Deep garnet-purple colored, the nose of the 2018 Poujeaux is a little reticent to begin, offering glimpses at smoked meats and tar over a core of warm red and black currants plus a waft of Marmite toast. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers plenty of earth-laced black fruit and a firm, chewy texture, finishing with an herbal lift.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Advocate
Flavors of plum and cherry preserves are melded nicely with cocoa and tobacco notes. Soft and rounded, yet persistent on the finish.
James Molesworth - Wine Spectator
Solid core of fruit and polished tannins give this a tight and composed palate. Fresh and bright.
One of the stars of the vintage, the 2018 Poujeaux is rich, luscious and bold, with a level of fruit density I don't recall seeing in the past. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, licorice and spice are all pushed forward in this racy, succulent Moulis. This is an especially fine Poujeaux. Don't miss it.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
The 2018 Château Poujeaux has plenty of potential and is an impressive Moulis. Pretty notes of black cherries, pipe tobacco, and freshly tilled earth all give way to a medium-bodied, nicely textured 2018 that has good ripeness in its fruit and tannins, outstanding balance, and great finish. It has plenty of potential.
