Chateau Poumey Pessac-Leognan Bernard Magrey 2004

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a wine merchant in Sussex for £10. It is from the Pessac-Leognan appellation which was created in 1987 out of what had been the northern part of the Graves appellation.and is very close to the southern part of the City of Bordeaux. My bottle comes from Chateau Poumey,a small property that is part of the Bernard Magrey empire. It consists of 60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot and is aged in oak barrels. I started my bottle last night with my supper of roast pork and I did enjoy it.There is certainly ample fresh blackcurrant and blueberry style fruit there and there are some well structured tannins holding it together In short,this is a lovely claret from a 'petit chateau'.that would be a superb accompaniment to a meal.

This estate was originally established in the 18th century but was owned by the British wine merchant Andrew Morton in the late 19th century. He built the house and it has passed through numerous owners since The house was used by the Germans during the occupation..Gradignan is very close to the City of Bordeaux and in the later 20th century there was a danger that Chateau Poumey,the last wine estate in the commune,and its vineyard and park would become a housing estate. In consequence the commune itself bought the estate in 1988 and rented the vineyard to Bernard Magrey who already owned other Bordeaux estates inclufding Pape Clement. He employed Michel Rolland as a consultant. There are 8 hectares under vine and most production is of red wine although there is some white. Read less
