Tasting notes: Dense and dark purple robe, while the nose entices with its intense bouquet of ripe red fruits, dark berries and wild cherry. A great sensation on the palate, with blackcurrant and blueberry flavours. Expressing the full potential of the fruit, the dense and flavoursome tannins build to a very long, fresh finish, with notes of sweet cinnamon.
About the Winery: François-Antoine POUGET inherited Château POUGET in 1748. His daughter Claire maried Pierre-Antoine de CHAVAILLES in 1771. Over one and a half centuries, the POUGET de CHAVAILLES family was in charge of CHATEAU POUGET. They had sometimes to face difficulties, as when, during the French Revolution, their properties were requisitioned, but they also met with great success, as CHATEAU POUGET was classified as a fourth Cru Classé in 1855. The château itself used to be a cellar, its front portion was turned into a house during the second half of the 19th century. Two marble medaillons on the frontage of the house commemorate the different classifications of CHATEAU POUGET.
