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.

Tasting Notes“Cask sample taken 6 April. 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot. Very dark core with purplish rim. Dark, savoury and a little bit oaky on the nose and the same character on the palate. The fruit is there at the core but there is absolutely no fruit sweetness until right at the very end, just dark and refined. Firm, slightly thick, chewy tannins. A little unyielding for now but harmonious. 13.5%. Drink 2028 – 2035. 16 + points.” (JH), Jancisobinson.com, Apr 21------"Good depth of colour to the fruit, deep plum, with attractive fresh fruit aromatics. Confident tannic frame with acidity and black fruits - all the elements to ensure it will age. There isn't the richness of the fruit that you will find in 2016 but it is full of personality and easy to recommend. One of the more successful wines from Moulis in the vintage. Lots of tannins, and a point of bitterness on the close of play that needs to be carefully handled during ageing. A yield of 34hl/ha. Drinking Window 2025 - 2036. 92 points" Jane Anson, Decanter Magazine------"A dense, layered red with blackberry, tar, asphalt and spice character. Medium-to full-bodied with wonderful, polished and creamy tannins. Chewy and fine. Potentially one of the best in a long time. 94-95 points" jamessuckling.com
