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.

A bit of a vegetal nose from the bottle but this quickly dissipated in the glass. Lots of fruit, nice balance but lacking length. I'm happy that I still have a few bottles. A nice easy drinking wine.

Eine klassische, strenge Aromatik offenbart sich in der Nase: Gewürze, vegetabile Noten wie auch Waldbeeren und Unterholz. Dieser Aromaeindruck bestätigt sich im Gaumen, wo sich eine Struktur von weichen, samtigen, aber präsenten Gerbstoffen mit der entsprechenden Fruchtsäure manifestiert. Das Finale ist anhaltend, typisch, gradlinig und klassisch.

Das Bouquet ist klassisch: Gewürzaromen, herbale Noten, gepaart mit Leder, Tabak und Beerenfrucht. Diese Aromatik vermag sich bis ins lange anhaltende, konsistente Finale konsequent in Szene zu setzen. Samtige, reife Gerbstoffe treffen im Gaumen auf eine fruchtige Struktur, die diesem Gewächs ein Rückgrat und einen eigenen Charakter verleihen. Der Château Potensac verlangt nach einigen Jahren der Flaschenreife, um seine erstklassigen Anlagen voll zum Ausdruck bringen und dem Weingeniesser ein vollendetes Genusserlebnis vermitteln zu können.

Firm and well-done, with focused berry and mineral character throughout. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine and sleek tannins and a long, racy finish. From Jean-Hubert Delon of Las Cases. Best after 2006.

Good medium ruby-red. Slightly medicinal aromas of blueberry, dark chocolate and game, with a liqueur-like exotic quality. Tightly wound and penetrating; in a rather brutal stage today, and not showing the lushness or sweetness of the vintage. Finishes firmly tannic, with a note of licorice.

(Barrel tasting) Racy. Ripe plum, with plenty of tobacco. Medium- to full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a flavorful finish.

The 1989 Potensac is a big, intense, alcoholic wine with exceptional ripeness, full body, and a long, chewy, fleshy finish. Anticipated maturity: Now-1999.

A wine with delicious berry, nutmeg and fresh tobacco character, with just a hint of vanilla. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Impressive. Very fine. Much better than from barrel. Best after 2008. 25,415 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Poujeaux 750ml
