2019 Château Poujeaux, Cru Bourgeois Moulis

A hidden gem in Pomerol, at an excellent price, the 2019 Moulinet-Lasserre has wild plummy fruit, plenty of spice, and a nicely mineral finish. Very good indeed.

TASTING NOTES

The 2019 Poujeaux has a more introverted bouquet than some of its Moulis associates, though it opens nicely offering black cherries, liquorice, pressed iris petals and touches of crushed stone. The palate is medium-bodied with insistent grip on the entry. This Poujeaux has good backbone, almost Pauillac-like in style with a dense and persistent finish that augers for a long-term wine that will repay those with the nous to cellar it a few years. Superb.
