Good intensity here, no hard edges but a smart feel. Classic claret-like shape, nice ripeness - touch of mulberry fruit and leafy, herbaceous tingle. Good Rating: 90 L&S (Apr 2015)

The 2014 Poujeaux has a rather muffled bouquet that lacks the brightness of its peers. It feels a little earthy and leathery, hints of pressed flowers emerging with time, though it does require more intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin on the entry. Chewy and more sinewy than I expect, a slight menthol character towards the finish. It delivers the density without quite the same degree of complexity and finesse. Give it another couple of years. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. Drinking range: 2019 - 2035 Rating: 87+ Neal Martin, www.vinous.com(Mar 2018)
Some complexity on the nose already. Broad and for once the fruit is the dominant factor – and it seems ripe enough. Graphite with a very dry end. I would not be surprised if this were a St-Estèphe. But everything is in the right place. Drinking range: 2023 - 2035 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Feb 2018)
The 2014 Poujeaux is striking, with silky tannins buffering the juicy fruit and terrific overall balance. Dark red cherry, spice, new leather, cedar and licorice are laced into a super-expressive, resonant finish. The 2014 is bold, forward and absolutely delicious. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. This is a terrific showing from Poujeaux, the Cuvelier family and Consulting Winemakers Stéphane Derenoncourt and Julien Lavenu. Tasted three times. Rating: 89-91 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com(May 2015)
Château Poujeaux sits on the Grand Poujeaux, a Gunzian gravel mound of similar constitution to the more illustrious communes of the Haut-Médoc. Alongside Château Chasse-Spleen, Poujeaux is one of the leading estates in Moulis and offers great value to the discerning Haut-Médoc consumer. Moulis sits a little way back from the Gironde, between Saint Julien and Margaux. 16th century records show that the estate was owned by Gaston de L'Isle, then owner of Chateau Latour, although this is some time before wine production began at Poujeaux during the 19th Century. Since 2008 Château Poujeaux has been owned by Philippe Cuvelier, also owner of Saint Emilion estate Clos Fourtet. There are around 100 hectares of vineyard planted with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
