Leoville Poyferre 2014

Leoville Poyferre

Case Format: 6x75cl

Max score: 95.0

Teaming with lush, juicy fruits, Château Léoville Poyferré offers a decadent wine where the distinct characteristics of Cabernet Sauvignon truly shines. Expect aromas of cassis, spice and rich black fruits, coupled with sensuous and supple textures – both of which remain the hallmark of Léoville Poyferré’s spectacular grand vin. Once part of the larger Léoville estate, Léoville-Poyferre eventually stood on its own after the French revolution saw its previous home divide into Léoville-Las-Cases, Léoville Barton and Léoville Poyferre. Its 80 hectares of vineyard comprise Cabernet Sauvignon (c.68%), Merlot (c.24%), Cabernet Franc (c.6%) and Petit Verdot (c.2%) and are divided into five different blocks that are dispersed around Saint-Julien. The terroir is mostly gravel, sand, clay and limestone soils. Château Léoville Poyferré can be enjoyed on the younger side but is best after between 10-15 years of bottle ageing.

Liqourice, smoke, baked earth, graphite, espresso and textured rippled black fruits. The tannins are holding things close to their chest, and this is enjoyable but needs time. A vintage that is generally seen to have been best in this section of the Médoc peninsula, and this is great quaity but needs a few years to open back up. 80% new oak, harvest October 1 to 14.

Real perfume on the nose here, so floral with peonies, rich blackcurrants and summer berry notes. Lovely clarity and precision on the palate, soft and delicate with such poise. Its not so expansive right now, a little shy perhaps, but the quality is excellent with the terroir signatures of wet stone and graphite coming through. This has just an easy-drinking appeal, delicately layered but with a juiciness and tannic structure that will ensure a long life ahead. Truly a lovely wine. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. Harvest 1-14 October.
