Château Dutruch Grand Poujeaux Red Bordeaux Blend Moulis En Médoc 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine: "The wine has a fine deep red colour with a purple shine and develops a bouquet of summer fruit and summer flowers. On the palate there is an immediate taste of boiled plums, with the first hints of chocolate and vanilla that will become more pronounced later. Overall, it is surprisingly smooth, but always with backbone. Like a Rolls Royce perhaps, so smooth to run, but with power described simply as "always adequate"." - Importer Winery: "Chateau Dutruch Grand Poujeaux takes its name from the proprietor who established the vineyard in about 1850. It was from his descendants that François Cordonnier, my uncle, bought the property in 1967. With the help of the experience and knowledge acquired in the numerous French vineyards which he had managed, one of them the famous Chateau de Chenonceau in the Loire, he imposed a personal style on the management of the vineyard and the vinification of its wines, looking for power and elegance. As the chateau's name indicates, our vineyard is situated in Grand Poujeaux, a hamlet of Moulis-en-Médoc well-known for the exceptional qualities of its terroirs. The parcels of land which make up the vineyard are on the best terroirs, with Garonne gravel, on the Grand Poujeaux hillock. They are planted in Merlots, Cabernets Sauvignons and Petits Verdots according to the suitability of each parcel. Recognized as a cru bourgeois right from the initial 1932 classification, our wine estate has a reputation for quality which comes from the excellence of its terroir and the remarkable ageing potential of its wines." - Winery
