TASTING NOTES

"Saturated ruby-red. Deeply pitched aromas of black cherry, currant and coffee. Sweet, silky and full, but with lovely ripe acidity to frame the dense black fruit, mocha and mineral flavors. Showing a glossy aspect to its fruit that is exhilarating, even if this deep, fairly tannic wine is a bit sullen at present, despite showing excellent back-end breadth. This is a full 13.5% alcohol; the petit verdot component reached 14.5% potential alcohol in 2005, said Cuvelier, who describes 2005 as "a year of sun but not surmaturite." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"Dark ruby red in color, with aromas of currant, blackberry, toasty oak and light cappuccino. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a beautiful, caressing aftertaste. Touches every part of the palate. Outstanding, but slightly disappointing after such a great showing from barrel. Best after 2009. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 18,915 cases made."

"A classic Poyferré of great refinement and texture: brilliant appearance; nose of flowers and fruit; beautiful, fresh palate and fine reach. Characterful without being overpowering." Michel Bettane/Thierry Desseauve, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 13

"Tasted blind. Dark crimson. Luscious colour! Very healthy look. Very dense, as though the density is locking the aroma in. Big and intense and luscious on the palate. Lots going on here." JancisRobinson.com
