Tasting Notes and Scores

89-91

Wine Advocate

The 2021 Poujeaux is a strong effort, opening in the glass with aromas of dark berries and plums mingled with notions of pencil shavings, violets and loamy soil. Medium-bodied, elegant and seamless, it's a pretty middleweight, framed by lively acids and powdery, melting tannins.

The 2021 Poujeaux was impacted by the frost, so there is more Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend this year. This was picked September 30 to October 14. It is well-defined on the nose, offering brambly red berry fruit, incense and light pine cone scents; the sense of airiness here is very appealing. The palate is medium-bodied, fresh and saline, with firm but fine tannins and touch of sour cherry and graphite on the precise finish. This is a very commendable Poujeaux that I suspect will age well in bottle. (13.0% alcohol)

This has a depth of fruit on the nose, clear blackberry, cassis and brambled fruit, with concentration and a mouthwatering finish. The oak is a little intrusive at this stage on the finish, but there is a ton of potential here, if lacking the seductive brilliance of recent years. This is always a benchmark estate for me in assessing the quailty of a vintage, as it is so consistenly excellent, and it's clear 2021 brought its challenges, with tomato leaf and celery stalk on the finish. Mathieu and Philippe Cuvelier owners, Christophe Labenne director, consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt. Tasted twice.
