  • Tasting Notes

    Comfortably nestling between two illustrious neighbours -Chateau Poujeaux and Chateau Chasse Spleen - Chateau Branas Grand Poujeaux, a 12-hectare (30-acre) jewel situated at Moulis-en-Medoc, boasts a great terroir, crafted with enormous attention to detail. When Justin Onclin became the owner of the estate in 2002, he came with two ambitions: to respect the heritage and the roots of his wine while at the same time instilling it with visionary drive and renewed passion. Within a few years, he has exercised his strength and freedom to build a streamlined, modern place, creating an original, genuine environment that produces a true, powerful yet subtle wine. As well as its terroir, the combination of attention to detail and precise execution makes Chateau Branas Grand Poujeaux simply inimitable. The Chateau team has successfully crafted a unique style for this wine.

    90/100 I like the soft and velvety texture to this. Full body, with berry and chocolate and nutmeg character. Very Moulis.


    Wine Advocate

    A noteworthy success in this vintage plagued with under-ripe, herbaceous wines (especially in the Medoc), the 2011 Branas Grand Poujeaux exhibits a dark ruby ​​/ plum color and a sweet creme de cassis, cherry, plum and damp earth notes. Medium-bodied and fruity with soft tannin and a generous texture as well as mouthfeel.


    Decanter 16.5/20

    Classy blackcurrant fruit with elegance, balance and length. Drink 2015-2022.
