The 2016 Chateau Poujeaux is an outstanding Moulis made with consulting help from Stéphane Derenoncourt. Strong, confident flavours show clear Médoc character, with dark berry fruits, silky tannins, great balance and freshness. This 2016 Chateau Poujeaux has turned out beautifully. Ripe, generous and deeply layered, the 2016 has so much to offer.

This is a superb vintage for Poujeaux.
