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. 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.

Beautiful aromas of berries, currants and cherries, with a hint of vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied, with delicious berry and cherry flavors. Long, long finish. Drink now through 2004. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1997 Poujeaux 750ml

Dark glowing crimson. Grunty, very concentrated. Arguably the miracle here is to find a wine from Jean-Hubert Delon under £20. And one you could actually think of drinking too. This should certainly appeal to classicists - especially those knowledgea... Jancis Robinson. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1997 Potensac 1500ml

Dark ruby core with a paler rim. The nose offers aromas of roses, mushroom, and earth interlaced with blackberry and cherry scents. On the palate, lively acidity lends verve to the black fruit flavors of this medium-bodied wine. Pair with spicy roast... Roland Hankerson.

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.

Dark ruby core with a paler rim. The nose offers aromas of roses mushroom and earth interlaced with blackberry and cherry scents. On the palate lively acidity lends verve to the black fruit flavors of this medium-bodied wine. Pair with spicy roasted meat dishes and firm sheep s milk cheeses. Drink through 2017.
