Tasting Note:

Didier Cuvelier emphasised the importance of the 'Summer Solstice'. The 21st of June marked the start of summer at Leoville Poyferre - the rain stopped and the sun shone brightly... He went on to describe 2016 as possessing the 'sumptuous fruitiness, unctuosity of 2009, balance and density of 2010. Produced from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, this large scale Poyferre is all about density, power and profound tannins at this stage. The palate is seriously impressive with fine grained tannins that are impeccably mannered. It has a technical and polished feel, but it still has Poyferre character and finishes with lingering cassis. A powerful Poyferre.
