  • 2000 Château Poujeaux - France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Moulis (5/10/2005)
    Opened not decanted. Nice purple maroon color. Pretty nose with dill, field & grass smells. Dry with firm tanins, but disappointing. You expect more from the nose but when you taste it but it seems muted and asleep. Needs at least two years.

Nice nose of Bordeaux funk with a lot of red and black fruit. I noticed a combination of coffee and cherry were most predominant, along with a little dark chocolate and blackberry. As time goes on and temperature increases the blackberry becomes far more pronounced. The wine reaches an almost jam-like black fruit quality. Jam-like by Bordeaux standards, still staying balanced and never approaching cloying. A lot of tannin and a lot of acid (aspirin-like) give this wine a hard-core high octane feeling, in a way I am not surprised. Obscured by its youth, but has a lot of fruit on the finish and aftertaste. The color is still a very young red/purple and it is medium bodied.

This wine can be helped by food (and believe me, I never say that.) for those of you that are into that.

I give it an 87 but think it has potential to be a 90-92, by my standards anyway.

I am going to add 2 additional years to tanglenet’s previous sentence
