Wine Region: Bordeaux - France
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
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:
Francois-Antoine Pouget inherited Chateau Pouget in 1748. His daughter Claire married 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 faced 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 Classe in 1855.
The chateau 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.
