Poujeaux 2014

Deep ruby with a tight garnet rim, 2014 Poujeaux recalls some complexities(60% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% cabernet franc) and 'class' of some excellent crus: inks, lead pencil, graphite, dark fruit(blackcurrants), tones of classy new oak, minerals and tones of animal and game below the lurking dark fruit. The chalky finish gives structure and exceptional grip. Medium-bodied, good length, rounded tannins. Certain sophistication sets this 2014 Poujeaux apart from other humble Cru Bourgeois. Scores are not bad.

JS91-92. Quite a dark and mellow wine with generous dry tannins and plenty of concentration. It would score even more highly if this weren’t chewy on the finish. Edited.

Tim Atkins 91. Poujeaux is generally among the best crus bourgeois of the vintage, and that's certainly the case in 2014. Deeply coloured, scented and beguiling, it has excellent density and concentration, leafy, floral undertones and a core of savoury black fruits complemented by oak. Edited.

RP91. The Château Poujeaux 2014 is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 35% Merlot. It offers blackberry and briary scents on the nose, a little disjointed at first, but the aromas merge with time. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin. There is satisfying fruit concentration here, finely-tuned acidity, and a sophisticated, elegant finish. Classically lined Poujeaux that should settle at the upper end of my banded score. Drink: 2018 - 2030. Edited.
