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 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

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.

Leuchtendes Purpurrot, beeriges Bouquet mit Aromen von Kirschen, Walderdbeeren und Brombeeren, zeigt auch sanft röstige Holzfassnoten, im Gaumen mit Fülle und Kraft, schöne Aromenkonzentration, druckvoll, sehr beerig, im Abgang mit noch jugendlichen, sehr präsenten Gerbstoffen, langanhaltend mit deutlichen Holzfassnuancen.

Fresh and pure with a friendly beam of raspberry and black cherry fruit pushed gently by mineral and tobacco hints on the open-knit finish. Drink now. 19 166 cases made. -JM Wine Spectator.

Perhaps the finest Potensac made since the 1982, the 2008 is undoubtedly a sleeper of the vintage. Harvested between October 4-16, this blend of 42% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 18% Cabernet Franc was fashioned from modest yields of 44 hectoli... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Potensac 750ml
