"The 2016 Poujeaux has a tightly knit bouquet of black fruit infused with melted chocolate and hinting at mint and sage. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, good depth and vigor, dovetailing into a slightly savory finish. I just have a nagging feeling that this could have been better. More ambition, please! 2022-2035"

"Blackberry, blueberry and orange-peel aromas follow through to a full body with a solid core of fruit and a fresh, tangy finish. The hazelnut and walnut undertones add to the complexity. Drink in 2021 and onwards."

The Médoc, Bordeaux’s largest and best-known wine region, is located on the triangular piece of land between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde River estuary in western France. This Left Bank parcel stretches some 50 miles north to south, with varying soils planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines. The area comprises two regions: Médoc to the north and Haut-Médoc (the “upper Medoc”) further south.
Half way between Margaux and Saint Julien, the Moulis-en-Médoc appellation is located slightly apart from the “route des châteaux”. Close and yet sheltered from the main thoroughfares, it has been able to profit from this discrete and privileged location to develop its own approach to the world of wine. Moulis produces a velvety red wine, less tannic than Listrac. Moulis is ready to drink sooner than other Médoc wines.
