ChÃ¢teau Pouget got its name from FranÃ§ois-Antoine Pouget who took over the estate in 1748.The MarÃ©chal-Duc de Richelieu, a great wine-lover, awarded the chÃ¢teau the coat of arms that still features on its label to this day. But it was in 1855 that ChÃ¢teau Pouget really found its place in the history of the great Bordeaux wines, when it was admitted as a 4th Grand Cru ClassÃ©. The Duke de Richelieu is at the origin of the coat of arms and motto of ChÃ¢teau Pouget. Â«Lâ€™amour sur ton cÅ“ur Ã©tendra sa puissance. Ton verbe sera clair comme le chant du Coq. A lâ€™Ã©gal du Lion tu ne craindras le choc. Si de cestuy nectar tu te remplis la panse.Â»Since 1906, the estate has been in the hands of the Guillemet family. Technical director Lucien Guillemet puts his great experience into creating a wine expressing all the beauty of these gravel soils envied the world over. He manages ChÃ¢teau Pouget with conviction, but also subtlety.ChÃ¢teau Pouget is the epitome of Margaux wine, a rarely-found combination of depth and finesse, delicious red and black fruit, grace and style of perfectly ripe Cabernet Sauvignon.It is a classic Margaux, effortlessly combining finesse and substance. At ChÃ¢teau Pouget particular attention is paid to the harvesting date, with the aim of picking grapes that have reached optimum ripeness. The grapes are sorted both in the vineyard and at the winery, and express all the finesse of this great terroir.
