Chateau Poujeaux 1997
|Bordeaux Blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot|
Undoubtedly a sleeper of the vintage, and probably the finest 1997 cru bourgeois, Poujeaux's 1997 exhibits a dense purple color as well as a sweet nose of black fruits complemented by toasty oak and loamy soil scents. Textured, layered, and rich, with low acidity and an excellent ripe finish
Winespectator / James Suckling (89)
Beautiful aromas of berries, currants and cherries, with a hint of vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied, with delicious berry and cherry flavors. Long, long finish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
