Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot
Tasting notes: This wine is already sumptuous, displaying some nuances in its huge nose of vanilla bean, black chocolate, jammy black cherries, cassis, and graphite in a flamboyant style. Opulent, savoury, rich, and full-bodied.
About the winery: With origins dating back to the early seventeenth century, the Second Great Classified Growth Chateau Leoville Poyferre is one of the most prestigious properties in the Saint-Julien appellation on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region. Under the control of the Cuvelier family, Didier Cuvelier took over the reins of the Saint-Julien estate from 1979, and since then has run the estate with masterful hands.
