2020 Château Poujeaux En Primeur (1)

Released en primeur today at £217 per dozen in bond, 2020 Château Poujeaux En Primeur divides the critics very slightly, with Jane Anson scoring it 92 points, despite calling it one of the best wines of Moulis from the vintage; whereas James Suckling declares it is "Potentially one of the best in a long time. (94-95 points)".  We are with Suckling on this one, we found it dark-fruited and completely classic, a savoury palate (amongst lots of wines with a juicy, succulent fruit character) which denotes seriousness. We can see this ageing beautifully in the medium term.  

Landing in spring 2023.
