The final blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot was cropped very low at 35 hectoliters per hectare. Deep purple, with a nose of subtle smoke, graphite, blueberry and black raspberry fruit as well as some spring flowers, in the mouth a touch of oak makes an appearance, but the wine is full-bodied, rich, inky and unctuously textured due to the high glycerin and alcohol that hits 14% plus. This beauty should drink well for up to two decades.||The finest wine I have tasted from Poujeaux over the last 33 years, the 2009 is the second vintage under the ownership of the Cuvelier family, who made the absolutely monumental 2009 Clos Fourtet. This large vineyard of over 100 acres has always had a relatively lofty reputation for the best wine of Moulis. The consultants on the 2009 were Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt, and they have produced a blockbuster Poujeaux that certainly qualifies as one of the sleepers of the vintage it is a wine to seek out, as it is reasonably priced.

Tasted at Vintex. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. A big, deep, confident nose from Poujeaux this year, very pure but actually much more closed than other 2009s. Nice purity and minerality coming through though. The palate has an almost honeyed entry, thick texture but smooth and cohesive, very pure towards the finish with black cherry, boysenberry and blueberry. Long finish. Very fine. Tasted March 2010

Intense aromas of orange peel, blackberries and hints of mushrooms. Full body, with a solid core of soft and velvety tannins and a fruity finish. Well structured. One of the best wines from here in years. Try after 2017. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Full and very velvety, with round and juicy tannins. Creamy. New ownership here is really making a difference in wine quality. this is the best ever after maybe the 1929

Very bordeaux in its savoury, dry fruit style. On top of that, a touch of vanilla sweetness. Firm, slightly chewy and a savoury dry aftertaste. Lots of savour. Very good. (JH) Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com
