Tasted October 2008: Terrific wine. Comparable to Chasse-Spleen but more elegant and deeper. An Haut-Médoc classic and quintessential Moulis. Only a shade of maturity in the colour, ripe cabernet-driven bouquet, a creamy texture in the mouth but with t...

This Medoc can take on quite a few more years, but, like the French, I like power, and this wine has exactly that: there is ample (more than ample, if you are North American) oak, but there is also deep Cabernet Sauvignon fruit - if just a teensy weens...

This Medoc can take on quite a few more years, but, like the French, I like power, and this wine has exactly that: there is ample (more than ample, if you are North American) oak, but there is also deep Cabernet Sauvignon fruit - if just a teensy weensy bit green. Tannic with that pucker on the mouth, there is the usual fut de chene flavour, but... Read More
The first Poujeaux that has slipped by the tonsils this year and it seems the very opaque, sang d'homme colour makes good its hedonic promise; the nose is blackberry, menthol and beet followed by a mature, balanced cedar plank, blackberry and vanilla entry. Very satisfying and ready to drink now, though can be cellared for a few more years. 8... Read More
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 Read More
Some Bordeauxish options:La Parde de Haut-Bailly is about $20 in France, less in Switzerland (!), more in the States. 2nd wine of the Chateau, which has improved quite a bit in recent years.Chateux Teyssier (St. Emilion), Olivier (Pessac-Leognan) and Potensac (Medoc) can still be found under $30, if not $20 anymore. Oliver's white is also excell... Read More
Decanted for a bit. Retaining nice color, but clouded with fine sediment. Warm nose of red berry tart. Currant driven nose. Some chalky soil. Some tart cherry. Ends on dry rose petal. On the palate, the fruit remains very youthful. Tart red berry fruit with good acid and softening tannins. Currant, cherry and some rustic wild berry flav... Read More

ash, burnt, charred, bit musty, soft, fair amount of black currant fruit, front loaded, not a lot of follow through, some length, flat and clumsy, a very chunky style yet its really soft 80pts Read More
Reticent, dried shoe leather, small red currant fruit, Sweeter, fuller, richer maybe even texturally fresher than the 82 but the fruit is less ripe, less intense, quite earthy and briary on the finish, good length though, more rustic than 82 but almost as good 87pts Read More
Intense, nicely, leathery, currant, classic Bordeaux, cedar, cigar wrapper , little musty, loosely structured, resolved, nice fruit, minor wine, little black fruit, bit toasty, bit tannic and dry on the finish, short little rustic, exposed structure on the backend and fini. 84pts Read More
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. Theres good complexity here and the fruit powers right through the bright finish. Nice depth and complexity, certainly not the... Read More
