Château Poujeaux:
Château Poujeaux, known in the 16th century as "La Salle de Poujeaux", an outbuilding of the present Château Latour, was purchased by Mr Castaing in 1806, and subsequently divided into three in 1880. In 1921, François Theil bought one third. All the vintages as from 1957 were signed Jean Theil, who succeeded in reuniting the three châteaux into a single winery, as it was before 1880. Si...

Château Poujeaux, known in the 16th century as "La Salle de Poujeaux", an outbuilding of the present Château Latour, was purchased by Mr Castaing in 1806, and subsequently divided into three in 1880. In 1921, François Theil bought one third. All the vintages as from 1957 were signed Jean Theil, who succeeded in reuniting the three châteaux into a single winery, as it was before 1880. Since 1981, the estate has been run by three of his sons, Philippe, Jean-Pierre and François Theil. In March 1997, the seven children created the Société Anonyme Jean THEIL. Over the last 15 years, the production area has been increased by 10 hectares. Considerable investments have been made for the cellars, with temperature control, ageing in new oak barrels, and increasingly stringent selection of the harvest, driven by a constant concern for quality.

A bit of a vegetal nose from the bottle but this quickly dissipated in the glass. Lots of fruit, nice balance but lacking length. I'm happy that I still have a few bottles. A nice easy drinking wine.

Eine klassische, strenge Aromatik offenbart sich in der Nase: Gewürze, vegetabile Noten wie auch Waldbeeren und Unterholz. Dieser Aromaeindruck bestätigt sich im Gaumen, wo sich eine Struktur von weichen, samtigen, aber präsenten Gerbstoffen mit der entsprechenden Fruchtsäure manifestiert. Das Finale ist anhaltend, typisch, gradlinig und klassisch.

A wine with delicious berry, nutmeg and fresh tobacco character, with just a hint of vanilla. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Impressive. Very fine. Much better than from barrel. Best after 2008. 25,415 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Poujeaux 750ml

What a Bordeaux to drink every day. It's incredibly well-balanced with very good berry concentration and an elegant finish. A wine to open up tonight.
