Ripe and heady nose filled with deep black cherry aromas and touches of rose petals, with some dark chocolate and liquorice nuances. So smooth and finely textured on the palate, tannins gently grip the mouth giving a fresh cola, mint and cool blue fruit flavour that expands and becomes more expressive as it goes from the beginning to the end. Lifted and well structured, such a great framework of ripe fruits, cooling freshness and integrated tannins. On the heady style, deeper rather than full of acidity, with a real lingering flavour of mint-edged fruit at the end suggests this has a long life ahead but with great drinkability soon.
Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider
Lusciously textured fruits come through with ease on the palate, along with its layers of savory blackberries, touch of dark cocoa, smoke, thyme and black cherries. The finish is even better due to its layers of soft, polished, ripe dark fruits. Give this a few years of age and its going to be great for almost 2 decades
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2019 Branas Grand Poujeaux is a charming, expressive wine, exhibiting aromas of rich berry fruit, spices, dark chocolate and petals, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and sensual palate. Layered and seamless, it's framed by ripe, powdery tannins and succulent acids. This is one of the flashier, more concentrated wines produced in Moulis, but it carries its ambitious vinification well.
Today Branas Grand Poujeaux amounts to some 23 hectares, having doubled in size by the incorporation of a contiguous neighbor. The estate's highly morcellated holdings are dotted around the plateau of Grand Poujeaux on deep gravel soils and are planted with some 60% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. Directed by Arjen Pen, with veteran Right Bank winemaker Hubert de Boüard as consultant, the estate's style is rich and dramatic, framed by a generous but nicely integrated patina of new oak that mark these out as among the more impactful wines in Moulis. In the vineyards, new plantings are at high density and soils are mechanically cultivated, without pesticides since 2002. Malolactic occurs in barrel, some 50% of which are new.
Neal Martin (Vinous)
The 2019 Branas Grand Poujeaux, cropped at 39hL/ha, has a delightful bouquet of beautifully defined black cherry, raspberry and light cedar aromas that gently unfurl in the glass. The saline palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins and lightly spiced. The harmonious, silky-smooth finish is irresistible. Go buy.
