Chateau Leoville Poyferre, Saint-Julien 2017 (WA94+)

Grape(s):67% Cabernet Sauvignon 31% Merlot & 2% Petit Verdot


"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Léoville Poyferré needs a little coaxing to reveal pretty scents of violets, Black Forest cake and blueberry preserves with hints of raspberry leaves, roses, cigar box and fragrant earth. Medium-bodied, the palate has a quiet intensity with loads of subtle layers and a well-poised frame of soft, fine-grained tannins, finishing long and refreshing." 94+/100 Wine Advocate-Parker
