    Château Poujeaux is a fruity wine, with ripe grape and black berry (blackcurrant) aromas. A certain power in the mouth, with density and tight tannins. A wine for elegant meals, which goes particularly well with game birds.

    Information about domain Château Poujeaux

    The Poujeaux vineyard's origins can be traced back to the 16th century. The property was then known as La Salle de Poujeaux and was attached to the current Château Latour. During the 19th century, Château Poujeaux belonged to the Castaing family, until it was split into three in 1880 following the settlement of the estate. One of the heirs, Philippe Castaing, sold his share to François Theil in 1921. Theil's son Jean then reassembled all three plots to recreate the original property in 1957. On his death in 1981, three of his seven children took over the property, which was managed by the Société Anonyme Jean Theil from 1997 to 2007. In 2008, Château Poujeaux was purchased by Philippe Cuvelier (the owner of Clos Fourtet on the right bank). A single 68-hectare block of vines, the vineyard is admirably located on the gravelly hilltops traditionally suited to the growing the classic Bordeaux grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon for strength, Merlot for roundness, Cabernet Franc for finesse and Petit Verdot for elegance. This harmonious blend, after being aged in oak barrels, a third of which are renewed every year, results in a wine that presents a perfect combination of concentration, richness… and a harmony that was greatly appreciated by President Georges Pompidou, a great fan of Château Poujeaux: the journalist Philippe Couderc reported in 1972 that the president (…) displays a sound appetite and an appreciation of gastronomy. However, there are no premier crus in his cellar. His preference is for Château Poujeaux, a Médoc in the Moulis appellation, ranked as a cru bourgeois. It is a powerful, earthy red wine, with plenty of chewy substance. Full-bodied and robust, it also possesses exceptional finesse. Qualities that, with all due respect, should appeal to a man from Cajac
