The name “Château Poujeaux” first appeared in 1806 but Terre de Poujeaux, situated in Moulis-en-Médoc, had existed since the Middle Ages.  At that time, it belonged to Latour Saint Mambert, now Château Latour, 1er Grand Cru Classé, Pauillac.  During the 19th century, the estate produced its first wines and became truly independent.
Previously divided up into three entities, it was only at the end of the 20th century and thanks to the Theil family that Poujeaux’s structure and size were restored.  The estate regained its historic form in 1956, unified with 100 hectares of which 70 hectares were under vine.  In 2008, the estate was acquired by the Cuvelier family, already owners of the famous Clos Fourtet, 1er Grand Cru Classé, Saint-Émilion.

Château Poujeaux is set upon the magnificent gravel slopes of Grand-Poujeaux, a single unbroken parcel of land to the northeast of Moulis.  Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (40%), the Médoc’s most famous grape varieties, are planted alongside Petit Verdot (5%) and Cabernet Franc (5%).  The soil types and grape varieties are perfectly matched, giving rich, elegant wines. The roundness and charm of Merlot is counterbalanced by the tension and energy of Cabernet Sauvignon.  Petit Verdot, despite making up a small proportion of the blend, brings powerful structure and a rich aromatic palate.  Finally, Cabernet Franc offers added complexity.  Rigor and vigilance are keystones in a constant search for the optimal expression of this precious terroir.
