Gulliver Leoville Poyferre Ml 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Maybe, just maybe, this is the year owner Didier Cuvelier will finally see his<br/>estate get the credit he deserves. This is an exciting, exotic wine, with rich,<br/>racy, mocha coffee flavours complimenting the utterly intoxicating black fruit.<br/>Huge tannins and a firm structure make this a wine for the long term (not<br/>unusual for Poyferré), but unlike so many other wines in 2006 it has the<br/>concentration of fruit to support it. This elegant Claret is arguably the<br/>second best wine in St Julien behind Léoville-Las Cases, and certainly offers<br/>outstanding value. Drink: 2016-2030.<br/>

Chateau Leoville Poyferre:
In the reign of Louis XIII, in 1638, a certain Jean de Moytié, Counsellor of the Bordeaux parliament and a noble bourgeois of the town, owned a beautifully sloped gravelly vineyard near the River.

In the reign of Louis XIII, in 1638, a certain Jean de Moytié, Counsellor of the Bordeaux parliament and a noble bourgeois of the town, owned a beautifully sloped gravelly vineyard near the River. This place, as was the tradition, was named after its owner and thus became the “Mont-Moytié.” Historically, the production of Mont-Moytié was among the first Médoc wines, along with the “Château de Margaux”, the “Tour de Saint-Lambert” or the “Château de La Fitte” in Pauillac and the “Château de Calon”, in Saint-Estèphe, which were all established before the period of civil war known as La Fronde (1648-1653.) These were the first estates to appear in the Médoc parishes, which were later to become commune appellations. Read less

Very woody on the nose. Wood and soft raspberry fruit on the palate. Big Tannins still. Showing too much wood overall right now.

Beautifully dense, this generous, rich wine combines great fruit with a firm but sweet structure. The new wood element is still prominent, but this is now beginning to blend well with the ripe fruit. To finish, the tannins reassert themselves. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Leoville-Poyferre 3000ml

Blackberry licorice and blueberry aromas lead to a medium- to full-bodied palate with fine tannins and a clean finish. Firm and attractive. Best after 2014. -JS Wine Spectator.
