Chateau Poyanne – Bordeaux 2015 – Wine Review – Trader Joe’s

There’s a very nice, strong aroma coming from the glass on first​ pour which portends a full-bodied wine.  The wine is fruity and dry at the same time in the mouth.  There are no real negatives.  Although for the very critical among us, there are hints of things to complain about.  This is a blend of mostly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, according to the internet.

Generally this wine is a love or hate affair when reviewed on the web.  About 2/3 of reviewers like this and think it’s a great value wine.  The 1/3 of reviews which hate this may be due to some “bad” bottles. Although my guess is those bad reviews are prompted by personal preferences. Most of the reviews were for earlier vintages.  There were very few 2015 vintage reviews.

While this is not a great wine, and would anyone really expect a great wine at this price, if you’re not afraid to challenge yourself by adding some complexity to a wine, this is an inexpensive way to do that.  And you just might like it.  I did.  Price $5.99.

    Review on Chateau Poyanne Bordeaux 2015
    I loved that wine and my Trader Joe’s doesn’t sell it anymore, and I can’t find it anywhere. It was the only red wine I ever enjoyed. I drank some and I cooked sauces with it.
    If I was to explain it’s flavor, I would say it was full bodied and had an initial burn to it, like a hot spice. I loved that. I have tried to replace this flavor by trying other wines but am unsuccessful and wasted money trying to find a replacement. Sigh.

    My neighbor left me this bottle as a thankyou for house sitting and feeding the cat, watering plants, feeding chickens, etc.
    What a cheap bottle of low grade red water. I expected much better than this crap. $5.99 no wonder it sucks. I ONLY DRINK $20+ wines for a reason. This was no better tan a low class central valley wine from Lodi. CMON why does France export the piss and keep the best at home?
