    Château Léoville Poyferré 2016, an exceptional vintage

    Produced from a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, the Château Léoville Poyferré 2016 is a Saint-Julien with a singular style.

    With its very dark, purplish, almost black color, the 2016 vintage of Château Léoville Poyferré reveals a great aromatic power, giving off fragrances of violet, black cherry and blackcurrant, all through a sensation of great freshness and purity of black fruits. Tense and lively on the attack, the wine develops atthe mid-palate upon a slender and finely grained tannic structure, wide and creamy, but not without elegance. The end of the mouth is harmonious, fruity and the blend is a complete success. Surely one of the most beautiful wines of Léoville Poyferré has ever designed.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Léoville Poyferré hits the ground running with intense cassis, violets, dark chocolate, menthol and fragrant earth notions complemented by nuances of cigar box and smoked meats. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is charged with energetic, super intense black fruit and floral layers, beautifully supported with super firm, ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness. This liquid is simply alive in the mouth, culminating in an epically long finish that will leave your mouth practically tingling. WOW!
