Poujeaux 2013



Medium ruby with a tight ruby rim and violet hues, 2013 Poujeaux recalls some complexities(60% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% cabernet franc) and 'class' of some excellent crus: layers of toasts, inks, lead pencil, graphite, dark fruit(blackcurrants), tones of classy new oak, minerals, melted tannins, tones of animal and game below the new, dark, berry fruity backbone.


On the palate, it's an easy, enjoyable wine, ready to drink today. The chalky finish gives structure and exceptional grip. It finishes medium-bodied, 拖, with a good length and rounded tannins. Certain sophistication sets this 2013 Poujeaux apart from other humble Cru Bourgeois.


Scores are not too high; hence we can still get this delightfully fruity 2013 at this price. DD91; also WS89.
