Château Poujeaux is set upon the magnificent gravel slopes of Grand-Poujeaux, a single unbroken parcel of land to the North-East of Moulis, in Bordeaux.  Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (40%), the Médoc’s most famous grape varieties, are planted alongside Petit Verdot (5%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). The soil types and grape varieties are perfectly matched, giving rich, elegant wines. The plots of vines are tended with great care through every season of the year. The 70-hectare vineyard is managed with sustainable agriculture techniques.  

Tasting Notes

The roundness and charm of Merlot is counterbalanced by the tension and energy of Cabernet Sauvignon. Petit Verdot, despite making up a small proportion of the blend, brings powerful structure and a rich aromatic palate. Finally, Cabernet Franc offers added complexity. Rigour and vigilance are keystones in a constant search for the optimal expression of this precious terroir.

Method

Harvest time is the culmination of a year’s work, generally beginning in mid-September and ending in mid-October. Each plot is picked by hand at optimal maturity, determined with the help of technical analysis and tasting of the berries.  The grapes are sorted then transferred to the winery. The fruit is separated according to the age of the vines, vineyard location and grape variety in order to obtain separate batches with complimentary characteristics. After a month of alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in vat, ageing takes place in French oak barrels over 12 months.
