Chateau Leoville Poyferre Saint-Julien 2017
Once part of the larger Leoville estate until the time of the French Revolution, Leoville Poyferre is now owned by the Cuvelier family. Around 80 hectares of exceptional terroir and located in the prestigiou appellation of Saint-Julien.
"Based on a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Chateau Leoville-Poyferre saw malolactic in barrels and spent 18 months in 80% new French oak. Sporting a deep ruby/purple hue, it delivers big, powerful notes of blackberries, blackcurrants, crushed violets, tobacco, and a touch of chocolate. Possessing medium to full-bodied richness, a rounded, opulent texture, and sweet tannins, it’s unquestionably one of the biggest, richest wines in the vintage. Give bottles 4-6 years of bottle age and enjoy over the following 2-3 decades. Tasted twice." Jeb Dunnuck
