The château takes it's name from both the original owner, and the zone on which the vines are planted; the "Grand Poujeaux." The vineyards cover 10 hectares (about 25 American acres), planted on gravel and soft clay. The vines are roughly equal to 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot. The wines show firm tannins with rich aromas of black fruit, coffee, and subtle oak. The finished is long, velvety, and polished.
About this wine producer: The château is named after the owner in the 18th century, André-Pierre Gressier de Poyen ; as to "Grand Poujeaux", this is the name of the most qualitative zone of Moulis, with a terroir of gravel and clay, of which the domaine covers 10 hectares. Since 2003 Gressier Grand Poujeaux belongs to the Merlaut family, owner of other prestigious châteaux such as Gruaud Larose, Haut-Bages Libéral, Camensac, and Chasse Spleen. The latter originally formed a singler estate with its neighbour Gressier. Gressier Grand Poujeaux wines are a blend of half and half Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, for an ultra charming result, ready to drink when young. Quite tannic, with aroma of black fruit, coffee and cinnamon, they offer good freshness and an interesting aging potential.
