The harmony and complexity of a fine Saint-Julien wine

As a superb Bordeaux estate, Chateau Leoville Poyferre is one of the most emblematic wines of the famous Saint-Julien appellation

The Chateau Leoville Poyferre technical team met the challenge of capturing the essence of the terroir to produce a wine with a unique character with similar weather conditions like the exceptional 2005 vintage. From the vineyard to the winery, Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2006 has received the greatest attention to express the best of this vintage.

The emblematic black grape variety of the Left Bank, Cabernet Sauvignon (73%), dominates the blend and it conveys all of its personality to wine. Merlot (21%) and Petit Verdot (6%) complement the blend as well.

With its almost black deep color, the Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2006 seduces at first sight. The wine reveals intense aromas of pure fruit consisting of blackcurrant and blackberry notes and then hints of coffee aromas. On the palate, the attack is powerful, which unveils the wine’s personality consisting of a luscious concentration. It is perfectly structured with tannins that give the wine finesse and elegance. Tasty and very fresh, the finish unfolds into a lovely and persistent length. A true jewel of the Saint-Julien appellation that can be enjoyed now or cellared to show even more promise.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Léoville Poyferré has one of the most harmonious and complete bouquets from Saint Julien: very well-defined blackberry, briary and chalky scents, real focus and delivery here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, ripe tannin matched with well-judged acidity. Like the 2006 Léoville-Barton, it is stubborn and backward, but there is clearly harmony and focus on the finish, the new oak deftly assimilated in the fabric of the wine. This is a lovely wine from Didier Cuvelier. Tasted January 2016.
