Chateau Leoville Poyferre, 2eme Grand Cru Classe, Saint Julien, Bordeaux, France, 2006
Grapes: 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot
"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."
92/100 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, May 2016
"Deep crimson. Starting to fade at the rim. Sweet, concentrated but spicy nose with some dustiness on the edge of the palate. Really muscular and fine. Long. Beautifully constructed. Luscious enough for current drinking but obviously has masses of potential. Ripe tannins."
