Château Léoville Poyferré 2009
El Château Léoville Poyferré cuenta con la clasificación Deuxième Gran Clu Classé, otorgada en la Gran Clasificación de 1855. De sus viñas procede este coupage elegante y clásico de Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot y Petit verdot, las uvas más representativas de la AOC Saint-Julien, una de las más prestigiosas de Burdeos.

Gorgeous aromas of blueberries and blackberries, with flowers and minerals. Full body, with silky tannins and a bright acidity on the finish. Tangy and chewy. Muscular. Try in 2018.
(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. Built for three decades of life in bottle.
Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Leoville Poyferre 2009 has a very pure, lifted, almost Margaux-like bouquet with blackberry, raspberry leaf and crushed stone - a certain coolness that is very appealing. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. It is quite compact in the mouth, but it is very well focused and displays poise and tension towards the composed finish. Excellent - this is a Saint Julien that is beginning to shed its puppy fat and find its "groove". Tasted January 2013.
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. Best from 2016 through 2026.
The greatest wine I’ve ever tasted from this address is the 2009 Léoville Poyferré, which is a step up over both the 2000 and the 2010. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and the balance Cabernet Franc that hit 13.9% alcohol, it offers everything you could ask of a wine and reveals a saturated purple color as well as incredible notes of crème de cassis, blueberries, lead pencil, exotic Spices, and dried flowers. Incredibly full-bodied, super concentrated, deep, and opulent, yet still pure, fresh, and lively, it has sweet tannin and a hedonistic vibe that hides its underlying structure. Drink it anytime over the coming three decades.
