In her book, Decanter’s Jane Anson describes Poujeaux as ‘easily one of the best wines of the [Moulis] appellation, and one that for me equals many 1855-classified growths.” Generous & well-structured, this is a great example of a Cabernet wine that will age with class and grace, making it a must have addition to any claret-lover’s cellar. Crushed stone, blueberries & black cherries congregate on the nose and translate to real structure on the palate, with grippy tannins and delightful tension on a persistent finish. At £18 a bottle it is easy to see why Poujeaux enjoys such a fervent following in the UK.
