The final blend in this vintage was 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, tipping the scales at 14% natural alcohol. The wine is outstanding. Rich black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with some graphite and floral notes are followed by an opulent, fleshy, full-bodied wine with impressive concentration, texture and length. Moreover, the 2010 can be drunk early on in life or cellared for 15 or more years.||Very close in quality to the brilliant 2009, this wine is the superstar of the appellation of Moulis. The estate is now owned by the Cuvelier family, who have overseen a major turn-around in quality at the famous St.-Emilion classified growth of Clos Fourtet. They have gotten this large vineyard of nearly 180 acres into top form as well. The vineyard is under the direction and management of two of the brilliant consultants of Bordeaux, Stephane Derenoncourt and Nicolas Thienpont, and they are doing a terrific job. The good news for consumers is that there are approximately 300,000 bottles of this brilliant wine from Moulis, which still sells at a fair price. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois primeur tasting. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, the Poujeaux 2010 has a crisp, well defined nose with fresh dark berried fruit, a touch of dark plum and a touch of Hoi Sin. Good definition and lift. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe, succulent tannins, quite modern in style but imbued with good tension and focus, this should be a little belter in bottle.

Love the fruity and chocolate character here, with lots spices and nutmeg. Full and velvety with soft tannins and a long finish. jamessuckling.com

Feels a little soft on the edges, but the core of plum, raspberry and fig character is persistent, and there's a nice tobacco edge on the finish, which picks up some grip. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

First sample: Fresh, lively on the nose. Lots of fresh fruit. Almost aggressively fresh and raw! A bit tart and green. (Score and tasting dates refer to the second sample.) Second sample: Particularly deep purple. Very, very rich. Taken right to the limit of ripeness. Yet there is freshness here too and the tannins, while a little drying, are not excessively painful. This is a very intense ambassador for 2010’s special qualities. Very fine tannins on the finish and lovely crunch. Pretty stolid and dense. Maybe a slight lack of acidity...? jancisrobinson.com

Well-extracted, ripe but compact fruit, good texture, balance and length. Drink 2015-24. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

Poujeaux is produced from 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The perfume is filled with boysenberry, earth and mocha. In the mouth, the wine offers spicy, chocolate covered cassis, round textures and tannins to age. winecellarinsider.com

The 2010 Poujeaux is a fairly deep ruby colour and offers up aromas of cedar, blackcurrant and plums. On the palate it is delicate yet intense, with a wonderful depth to flavours which unfold layer by layer on the very long finish. Impressively in the context of this vintage, the 2010 Poujeaux is made in an elegant style without heaviness or extraction. Tasted twice and equally good each time. asianpalate.com
