58% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, 6% petit verdot, and 6% cabernet franc. Aromas of dark plum and black cherry mix with notes of cola, dark chocolate, and damp earth. Filled with big, firm, grippy tannins, the vintage's high acidity is notable but ... Alex Shaw. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Leoville-Poyferre 6000ml

Winemaker's Notes:

"This shows a currant and berries with dark chocolate character. Full and chewy with a bright acidity. Structured too. A little austere. Wait and see. Only about 40% of the normal production. 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot... 91-92" JS 04/12 "A very ripe, fleshy, gutsy style, with mouthfilling tar, espresso, braised fig and dark plum notes still waiting to meld fully.

Impressive...91-94" WS 04/12 "Another super effort from this estate, Leoville Poyferre-s 2011 possesses an opaque purple color in addition to a ripe, fragrant nose of black currant fruit, cedar, white chocolate and a touch of oak. Rich, layered and medium to full-bodied with unmistakable elegance and purity, vibrant acids and a fresh, lively personality, it will need 3-4 years of cellaring and should keep for two decades...91-94" WA 04/12
