Château Poujeaux 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit astringent on the nose with notes of iron and toasted oak accenting the slightly roasted black cherry fruit. Soft and silky on entry this shows of some crisp tannins with a savory edged core of bitter cherry fruit. There’s good complexity here and the fruit powers right through the bright finish. Nice depth and complexity, certainly not the best wine here but one that is ready and delicious. 88pts

Château Poujeaux:
Château Poujeaux, known in the 16th century as "La Salle de Poujeaux", an outbuilding of the present Château Latour, was purchased by Mr Castaing in 1806, and subsequently divided into three in 1880. In 1921, François Theil bought one third. All the vintages as from 1957 were signed Jean Theil, who succeeded in reuniting the three châteaux into a single winery, as it was before 1880. Si...

Château Poujeaux, known in the 16th century as "La Salle de Poujeaux", an outbuilding of the present Château Latour, was purchased by Mr Castaing in 1806, and subsequently divided into three in 1880. In 1921, François Theil bought one third. All the vintages as from 1957 were signed Jean Theil, who succeeded in reuniting the three châteaux into a single winery, as it was before 1880. Since 1981, the estate has been run by three of his sons, Philippe, Jean-Pierre and François Theil. In March 1997, the seven children created the Société Anonyme Jean THEIL. Over the last 15 years, the production area has been increased by 10 hectares. Considerable investments have been made for the cellars, with temperature control, ageing in new oak barrels, and increasingly stringent selection of the harvest, driven by a constant concern for quality.

Herbaceous and earthy with notes of blond tobacco, subtly sweetly fruited – a bit soft up front, nice purity to the mineral tinged black currant fruit, a bit simple but fullish and savory, slightly dry finish (85-86)

Seared fruit, light spice, nice balanced nose, good fruit and spice, dried spices, spice rack – resolved, nice fruit, decent depth, a bit taut, a bit short, a little chewy, light black currant fruit, a bit chunky, fun, still youthful, decent length, nice fruit tone on the finish. 87pts

ash, burnt, charred, bit musty, soft, fair amount of black currant fruit, front loaded, not a lot of follow through, some length, flat and clumsy, a very chunky style yet it’s really soft 80pts

Reticent, dried shoe leather, small red currant fruit, Sweeter, fuller, richer maybe even texturally fresher than the 82 but the fruit is less ripe, less intense, quite earthy and briary on the finish, good length though, more rustic than 82 but almost as good 87pts

Spicy, leathery, sweet oxidation, bit of crushed rock, lovely spice tones, vibrant if aged, dried berry – sweet leading edge, plenty of acid, resolved tannins, nice core of red fruit still here, nice balance, a small wine, nice follow through though with rich red fruit, more strawberry than currant,. Very much at the end of its plateau of maturity but still able to provide pleasure. Shows a touch of falling apart on fini. 88pts

The first Poujeaux that has slipped by the tonsils this year and it seems the very opaque, sang d'homme colour makes good its hedonic promise; the nose is blackberry, menthol and beet followed by a mature, balanced cedar plank, blackberry and vanilla entry. Very satisfying and ready to drink now, though can be cellared for a few more years. 89-90 points.

Notes of sour cherry, cedar shanks, plum and blackberry on the nose - very Medoc. Entry is smooth, with degrading, silky oak and rich Cabernet Sauvignon cassis predominating. Finish is quite long and satisfying, if just a tad sour. Ready now; holding is not required for improvement. Good value. 88 points

tasted 4/2012, Probably could use a bit more cellar time, but very french (i,e, subtle) but presents with lovely fruit and sublime finish once it has enough air.

Slightly disappointing. Ruby colored wine with lots of tobacco and odd spices on the nose. Very meaty and gamey on the palate with notes of cigar.

Firm tannins a wine with a solid structure the weight packed tightly into its firm structure. Concentrated tannins are very present while still fruity. Wine Enthusiast.

Lively, tangy style, with currant and pomegranate notes and nice floral lift on the finish. A touch crisp but should soften enough with the élevage.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Potensac 750ml

A sleeper of the vintage, this blend of 52% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc exhibits outstanding ripeness (13.5% alcohol) as well as a deep ruby/purple color and excellent notes of crushed rocks, red and black currants, licorice...
