Chateau Poujeaux Moulis en Medoc, 1985

This wine has been in my cellar for many years, and I was somewhat disappointed with it when it was young. By the mid to late 1990s, I was ready to give up on it. Glad I didn't because it is now showing beautifully, nearly as good as the excellent 1982 Poujeaux.

The color has faded to a medium light amber, but the wine does not smell or taste old. Beautiful bouquet of dark currants, flowers and cinnamon. The tannins that made the wine taste austere years ago have faded, but the acid is strong, carrying lovely fruit flavors all the way to the finish. At 35 years, still going strong.
