The absolute success of an exceptional Saint-Julien

As an emblematic vintage of the prestigious Saint-Julien appellation, Château Léoville-Poyferré has become one of the greatest wines on the Left Bank in the Bordeaux region.

In line with the exceptional 2009 vintage, the 2010 marks the culmination of a prodigious vintage for Château Léoville-Poyferré.

The Leoville-Poyferre 2010 is perfectly executed to reveal the profile of a Saint-Julien that dazzles with depth and balance. It offers a chiselled bouquet that highlights the perfect ripeness of the fruit. The character of each grape variety expresses itself harmoniously to emphasise the aromatic purity of Cabernet Sauvignon (56%) that dominates the blend. It is also complemented with Merlot (34%), Petit Verdot (7%) and Cabernet Franc (3%). With elegance and refinement, the vintage reveals its generous personality through its ample and fleshy texture that is chiselled with fruity tannins of great finesseand silky delicacy. All of this testifies to the great mastery of winemaking.

The Chateau Leoville-Poyferre 2010 is an exceptional vintage that combines the power of the great 2005 and the classic elegance of the 2008, and it is indeed one of the greatest vintages from the estate that promises longevity.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Léoville Poyferré opens with notes of sautéed herbs and pencil shavings on the nose, giving way to scents of redcurrant jelly, baked plums and cedar chest plus a waft of cassis. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has pleasant energy and well-played, lightly chewy tannins with compelling freshness on the finish.
