Chateau Dutruch Poujeaux 2010
Deep ruby, tight rim. Floral. Ripe nose- raisin, cherry. The palate leads to tones of dark fruit(currants and cherries), spices, black peppery, and is still cedary. Medium, dry finish. An excellent food wine for the mineral touch. Balance and elegance-it is a bottle that gives quite a different taste profile. The wine benefited from bottle ageing and still got some mileage. Also, only some have tasted wine in Hong Kong.
Halfway between Margaux and Saint Julien, it is slightly apart from the D2. The Chateau is close yet sheltered from the main thoroughfares and profited from this discrete and privileged location to produce authentic and honest Moulis wines.
Scores not bad, for example
From the Poujeaux section of Moulis, Dutruch Grand Poujeaux is still family-owned and -inhabited. This is deliciously fruity and ripe; generous tannins firmly balance the juicy black-currant flavour. A concentrated wine that will undoubtedly age well. Edited.
