TOB exclusive import: Eclats de Branas Grand Poujeaux 2017 from Moulis en Medoc (SOLD OUT)
Éclats de Branas Grand Poujeaux 2017 from Moulis-en-Médoc.
50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Cool and savoury aromatics, restrained at first, subtle and darkly complex, very delicate background potpourri or rose petal notes, and then a very savoury palate, medium full but with good bite, excellent balance, grip, density, and length. As with many great and highly cellarable wines this wine's potential longevity can be seen its firm and focused restraint. The Cabernet has really got hold of this blend and, while the Merlot is keeping it full and attractive, its hallmarks - the tannin and stylistic seriousness - come from the Cabernet. While Merlot gives everything up front and immediately, Cabernet-rich blends like this have layers.
