Decanter: The leading player in the appellation. A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc with 5% Malbec. Lovely aromatic expression – blueberry and dark fruit notes. Sweet fruited palate with a touch of oak present. Fine, rounded tannins and a firm, chalky finish. Fine ageing potential. 90 Points

Tasting Notes
Wine Spectator - "This has a strong tobacco leaf edge, along with a dark tea note and a twinge of alder, all mixing with the medium-weight core of black cherry fruit. Shows good range and length. Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points"
Ratings
The Wine Advocate - "The 2015 Puygueraud was picked between September 28 and October 13, and is a blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec. It was a little reduced on the nose at first, though it cleared to reveal stony blackberry fruit, quite "airy" and lifted. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, fresh and lively, a pleasant mineral core already tangible with a brisk, fresh, crisp finish. This is a little delight. Barrel Sample: 88-90 Points"
Awards
James Suckling - "So pretty and refined already with dark fruit and floral character. Full body, very polished tannins and a precise and clean finish. Barrel Sample: 92-93 Points"
Other Notes
Though the CĂ´tes de Francs appellation didn't exist until 1976, Georges Thienpont purchased this property in 1946. The vineyards had been devastated by the two World Wars, so for many years he used the property to grow cereal and keep cattle, but in 1979 he judged the estate ready for replanting. In 1983 he was assisted in producing the first vintage by his son, Nicolas Thienpont, a highly respected winemaker who is now responsible not only for Puygueraud but also top Saint-Emilion properties like Berliquet and Larcis Ducasse.
