External Reviews for Chateau Leoville Poyferre Saint Julien Futures
Solid notes of steeped black currant, ganache-coated fig and plum eau de vie pump along in this very dark red, but with well-integrated structure. Long and winey through the finish, with the grip extending everything nicely. Best from 2016 through 20... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Leoville-Poyferre 1500ml
Due to a division of the large Léoville estate, Château Léoville- Poyferré was created in 1840 and included as a second growth in the famous 1855 Classification. In 1920, the Cuvelier family purchased the estate and Didier Cuvelier has been in charge since 1979.Major investments were made thereafter to bring out the best in the vineyards, and the cellars were also renovated. In 1994, noted consulting oenologist Michel Rolland began to offer his precious winemaking advice. The final blend is made after many careful tastings. Château Léoville-Poyferré is aged in oak barrels, 75% of which are new every year. It is an extremely well-balanced wine with a great deal of finesse and excellent ageing potential.
60% cabernet sauvignon, 29% merlot, 6% cabernet franc, 5% petit verdot. Tightly wound, the slightly muted nose reveals notes of oak, cedar and cut grass on top of aromas of blackberry and black cherry. The fruit is still tightly wound on the palate, ... Alex Shaw. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Leoville-Poyferre 6000ml
Inky purple. Brooding, masculine nose offers black plum, chocolate liqueur, orange peel and espresso. Soft and supple on entry, then a bit youthfully aggressive in the middle, but with a distinctly chewy texture supporting the ultraripe black plum and chocolate flavors. Finishes with building, slightly dry tannins and hints of Oriental plum liqueur and peppery soy sauce. Always a sexy wine, this Leoville Poyferre has excellent balance and is more discreet than some other vintages of the last 20 years. It may still be a little short on finesse, but it's hard to argue with its almost decadent, voluptuous appeal. Very well done, and likely to be one of the ch a teau's most successful wines ever.
One of the stars of the vintage, it will be interesting to see if Poyferre ultimately eclipses Las Cases as the finest of the three Leovilles. The 2009 is even better than the 2000, 2003, and 2005. Its inky/purple color precedes a wine filled with ex... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Leoville-Poyferre 1500ml
An immensely structured wine, packed with dark tannins promising aging potential. It is complex, powerful, layered with new wood and concentration, finishing with dark plum fruits and acidity. R.V. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Leoville-Poyferre 6000ml
(a blend of 62.5% cabernet sauvignon 29% merlot 6% petit verdot and 2.5% cabernet franc): Bright medium ruby. Classic Saint-Julien aromas of cassis licorice tar minerals and dark chocolate. Lush sweet and powerful with a superb glyceral texture to the dark berry and dark chocolate flavors. Huge wine but not at all heavy. The extremely long echoing finish features utterly noble tannins that saturate the front teeth. Offers a show-stopping combination of sweetness and structure. Bui
