Château Poujeaux Red Bordeaux Blend Moulis En Médoc 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

The chateau is in the village of Poujeaux and has ancient origins, being an estate dating back to 1544 when it was a dependency of Chateau Latour. The property is now run by the Theil family who took it over in the 1920s and reunified the various parts on the estate. The vineyard is located on a rich vein of deep gravel, which it shares with Chateau Chasse-Spleen. The encepagement is interesting because all four traditional grape varieties are used with the proportion of Petit Verdot being surprisingly high (around 10%). The vinification is traditional with long fermentations and macerations of 4-6 weeks in wooden, concrete and stainless steel vats. 30-40% new casks are used and the Theils either do not believe in filtering their wine (according to David Peppercorn) or they do (Robert Parker). Whichever, the wines themselves are deep coloured with overtones of tobacco, and the flavour stylish and fine, although rich and powerful.

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.
