Dark ruby / purple colour is accompanied by a sweet nose of cranberries, blackberries, minerals and toasy oak. A medium to full bodied wine with fine depth and excellent texture.
Poujeaux's 52-hectare vineyard is located in a single plot on a well-sited gravel ridge just outside the village of Poujeaux. The wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (40%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The 1953 vintage was famously mistaken by Baron Rothschild for Lafite, and remains the finest wine the property has ever produced.
Château Poujeaux, a Cru Bourgeois property that consistently produces wines of Grand Cru Classé quality. Poujeaux is located in Moulis and can trace its history back to the 16th century and has been owned and run since 1921 by the Theil family.
