Love the fruity and chocolate character here with lots spices and nutmeg. Full and velvety with soft tannins and a long finish.

Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois primeur tasting. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot the Poujeaux 2010 has a crisp well defined nose with fresh dark berried fruit a touch of dark plum and a touch of Hoi Sin. Good definition and lift. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe succulent tannins quite modern in style but imbued with good tension and focus this should be a little belter in bottle.

2010: An undeniable sleeper of the vintage this may be the finest Poujeaux I have tasted in three decades. A crushed rock/mineral character is intertwined with abundant black currant blackberry incense and camphor notes... 2010: An undeniable sleeper of the vintage this may be the finest Poujeaux I have tasted in three decades. A crushed rock/mineral character is intertwined with abundant black currant blackberry incense and camphor notes in this full-bodied unctuously textured elegant pure effort. It is capable of lasting 15 years. Kudos to new proprietor Philippe Cuvelier (also the owner of St.-Emilion's Clos Fourtet) for resurrecting this well-known estate.

Feels a little soft on the edges but the core of plum raspberry and fig character is persistent and there's a nice tobacco edge on the finish which picks up some grip. -J.M.

A single block vineyard of 70 acres is planted on Gunz gravels. In 2008 the Cuvelier family owners of Clos Fourtet purchased the property. A pretty and evolved nose of blackberry plum mocha and baking spice leads into a rich supple entry of black fruit. This modern wine is polished and drinks well out of the gate with fine-grained well-manicured tannins. A candidate for best buy from this region. Nicolas Thienport and Stephane Derenoncourt to consult. Tasted twice.
