In 2002 kocht de Belg Justin Onclin, voormalig eigenaar van handelshuis Sovex Woltner, het juweeltje Château Branas Grand Poujeaux.
De 12 hectaren hebben een excellent terroir gelegen in Grand Poujeaux, de meest kwalitatieve lieudit van de appellatie Moulis-en-Médoc.Meer over deze wijnmaker
This 9.78-hectare vineyard is situated in the town of Moulis-en-Médoc on the Left Bank of Bordeaux, where it is nestled in between Château Poujeaux and Château Chasse-Spleen. From the lieu-dit Grand Poujeaux, the blend is 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. The wine has 14.5% alcohol and is aging in 60% new and 40% second year barrels. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Branas Grand Poujeaux opens with scents of redcurrant jelly, fresh blackberries and ripe plums with hints of chocolate mint and spice cake. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with vivacious red and black fruits, framed by rounded tannins and finishes spicy.
Wonderful purity of fruit and finesse on the nose and palate here. Medium body and ultra fine tannins with clarity of fruit and pretty length.
