Tasting Note:

Tasted twice with consistent notes, the 2011 Leoville Poyferre is one of the most seductive and polished wines of the vintage. Didier Cuvelier explained that 'because of a poor veraison, some berries didn't ripen and remained small and pink. These were eliminated from the wine by the estate's optical sorting table'. 2011 is 'a year when the wine grower's work and the selection processes make all the difference'. On the evidence of our tastings, Didier and his team got it spot on. Liquid minerals, flowers and hints of dark chocolate liqueurs. On the palate there is great density and a mass of perfumed purple fruit. Bright, yet deep, complex, gourmand, very suave and sexy, but there is structure here too. Another exceptional Poyferre to add to the long list. 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 6% Cabernet Franc; 13.7% alc with IPT Polyphenols of 94.
