Wednesday night's middle of the week wine is the 2010 Château Gressier Grand Poujeaux. This wine is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot and made in conjuction with Château Chasse-Spleen.
The nose reveals juicy dark fruit, black cherry, black raspberry, black plum, black currant, licorice, violet floral notes, chocolate and an earthiness.
The palate leads us to the same juicy dark fruits of black cherry, blackberry, black plum, black currant, herbal notes, licorice, violet florals, toasty oak and good earthy notes.
We have a full bodied medium + acidity, medium + gripping tannins that moves right into a long finish with lingering cherry notes straight through. Enjoy the down hill side of your week and continued safe travels. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 3 years ago

This dog needed 4 hrs to really open up. When I first opened it and tasted without decanting, all I got was a blast of pencil lead, oak, chocolate, coffee. Was left wondering what happened to the fruits!! Left it alone for 4 hours and it opened up beautifully. Got cassis, ripe strawberries, black currents, ripe cherries with hawthorns, violets and then truffles, chocolate, curry leaves. Got the same on the palate, though maybe truffle was not there. Dry wine, medium minus acidity, medium plus tannins and a long earthy finish. This was fun to drink. Linear wine and would have guessed $75-100 bucks for a bottle I got for $30 bucks..the trick was leaving it alone for 4 hrs. — a year ago
Nose of fresh stewed fruit. Blackberry, plum, cassis. Herbal tinged around an iron core. Softly grained tannins. Black pepper. Still intense and explosive after all this time. Could even keep going. Delish. — 5 years ago
