What are the specificities of Château Poujeaux?

All the estates in Bordeaux have known a multitude of owners and the Château Poujeaux is no exception to the tradition. The estate passed through many hands before taking a decisive turn in 2008 when the Cuvelier family became the owners.

Typical of the region, the vines are on average 35 years old and enjoy a terroir on gravelly soils. The vineyard uses sustainable viticultural practices that respect the vines as well as the environment and could convert to biodynamic agriculture relatively quickly.

Under the wise advice of Stéphane Derenoncourt, the wine is even better. Finesse and elegance are assured. Pronounced tannins and remarkable balance characterize the Château Poujeaux, which has become more complex over the years.

The vineyard offers a wine tasting composed of different grape varieties:

  • Cabernet Sauvignon 50%
  • Merlot 40%
  • Cabernet Franc 5%
  • Petit Verdot 5%

The making of the wine of Château Poujeaux is a laborious and meticulous process. The fruit is a whole berry fermented in a combination of small stainless steel vats, oak barrels and cement vats with a vatting time of 25 days. The Château Poujeaux is aged in new French oak barrels at about 40% for an average of 12 months. Annual production is around 300,000 bottles.

In order to best express its terroir, the estate produces a second wine, La Salle de Poujeaux, formerly marketed under the name Moulin de Poujeaux. The vineyard also produces a Third wine, Haut de Poujeaux.
