Tasting Notes
91 - e-Parker
"Cru Bourgeois 2009 : The 90+ Wines : The Dutruch Grand Poujeaux 2009 has a refined, well delineated bouquet with freshness and vitality. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, very harmonious with a composed finish demonstrating succinct use of oak and top-class winemaking. Bravo !. »
91 - Wein Welt
Meilleure note du classement des Crus Bourgeois 2008 : « Das Highlight : Unser jahrgangsbester Cru Bourgeois kommt überraschenderweise nicht aus St. Estèphe, Margaux oder Pauillac sondern aus Moulis : floral-würziger Typ mit Holunder, Wildkräuter, Veilchen, Cassis, dunkel und leicht rauchig, sehr gute Struktur.»
92 - Wine Enthusiast
BEST RATING IN MOULIS-EN-MÉDOC : 92. « Rich, the structure all a part of the ripe blackberry fruits, very dark in style. The wine is very ripe, still retaining elegance. »
