Sporting a deep purple-black color, the 2020 Puygueraud bursts from the glass with vibrant notions of black cherries, ripe black berries and redcurrant jelly, plus wafts of garrigue, fertile loam and tar. The medium to full-bodied palate possesses plenty of freshness with a soft texture and bags of juicy black fruits, finishing earthy.

The 2020 Puygueraud presents a nose of earthy, broody black fruit infused with tobacco and cigar humidor; a faint touch of bell pepper surfaces with further aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, grainy tannins and plenty of black fruit laced with tobacco and black pepper that lends it a Left Bank personality. Classic in style, this is a promising Francs Côtes de Bordeaux, though one cut from a more restrained cloth compared to recent vintages.

James Suckling

Lots of blackberry and blueberry character with a salty, minerally undertone. Rather spicy with black earth. It’s full and very polished. Really well crafted. Another excellent Puygueraud.

Antonio Galloni

The 2020 Puygueraud is a huge, inky wine. Blackberry jam, graphite, dark chocolate, licorice and espresso infuse it with tons of depth, and yet there is good freshness and plenty of savory intensity that builds into the finish. In a word: terrific.

Dark red berries with hints of blue fruit, crushed rocks and cocoa define the nose. On the palate, the wine is fresh, earthy, savory and plummy with spicy undertones in the mineral-driven finish. Things keep getting better and better every year. 91-93

Small yields here because of the hail in mid April, 15hl/ha, a third of the usual harvest. But what is left behind is so drinkable with such careful placing of the fruit - a good slather of black fruits, extremely fine and harmonious with good pace as it travels through the palate. Excellent; slightly closing in on the finish because of tannic build up.
