Château Léoville Poyferré 2016, an exceptional vintage

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

With its very dark, purplish, almost black colour, 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 at the 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 :
The 2016 Leoville-Poyferre is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Didier Cuvelier told me that color leeched out naturally and he conducted an 8 day pre-fermentation maceration. Matured in 80% new oak with some malolactic in barrel, it has a typical bouquet for this estate with opulent but neatly controlled, billowing scents of black cherries, black plum, crème de cassis and violets. The palate is beautifully balanced with fine tannin, a killer line of acidity and perhaps one of the most harmonious Poyferré that I have encountered at this juncture. It just glides across the mouth and slips down the throat with consummate ease. Superb.
