Château Léoville Poyferré Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: With its smooth, creamy, black and red fruit and massive, super-suave<br/>tannins, this is a silky, powerful, sexy wine with the plump, ripe fruit of the<br/>vintage and a refreshing, mineral backbone. Well-balanced and with fine<br/>tannins, this has the elegance and finesse of its heritage with a fragrant,<br/>enticing nose that will draw you back for more. This is at a really good price<br/>for the quality and is really worth considering.<br/><br/>

These were the first estates to appear in the Médoc parishes, which were later to become commune appellations. Read less

Very complex on the nose and palate. Ripe red fruits, good concentration, smooth tannins, and a nice long finish make this wine a winner! John Sweeney. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Leoville-Poyferre 6000ml

This powerful, dense, full-bodied 2008 is still backward and unevolved, but it possesses a dense purple color as well as sweet aromas of creme de cassis, vanillin, crushed rocks, and flowers. With high but ripe tannin and a long finish, this wine wil... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Leoville-Poyferre 6000ml
