Bordeaux’s 1855 raking is outdated, a new class of Super Bordeaux is threatening to shake the region’s 1855 classification system to the core: one of 8 super Bordeaux wines not to miss: Château Branas Grand Poujeaux

2018 Chateau Branas Grand Poujeaux
89-91/100
An impressive Moulis, the 2018 Château Branas Grand Poujeaux offers a soft, rounded, nicely textured style as well as attractive savory red and black fruits, dried herbs, chocolate, and subtle herbal notes. A blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot, made with consulting advice from Hubert de Bouärd, it’s well worth seeking out and should keep for over a decade.
