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.
