TASTING NOTES

"The deep well of gorgeous cassis, blueberry paste and blackberry puree flavors will carry this for the long haul. Shows a terrific graphite underpinning and a flash of cold charcoal. This is a big one." Wine Spectator

Rating: 95-98


"The buildup on the palate is impressive with blackberry and blueberry character. Plenty of currants, too. Full-bodied, linear and tight. Racy tannins and a long finish. Shows tension, depth, real raciness and pure finesse. A combination of the best from both 2009 and 2010." JamesSuckling.com

"A huge, soaring wine, the 2016 Léoville-Poyferré is powerful, vivid and captivating. Vertical tannins and massive concentration belie the wine's 13.6% alcohol. The more virile, brooding side of Saint-Émilion comes through in this decidedly potent wine. In 2016, many Saint-Juliens possess incredible richness and voluptuousness. Léoville-Poyferré is arguably the most tannic and brooding of the wines of the appellation. I suspect the 2016 will take many years to be at its very best. A rush of dark fruit, leather, smoke, tobacco and chocolate add the final shades of nuance." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Great volume in the mouth, intense color, a monumental Poyferré, maybe for the moment a bit thickened by its Merlots and its Petit Verdots, more important in the blend than in the two other Léovilles. Length and complexity that warrant waiting." Michel Bettane/Thierry Desseauve, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 56

"Deep purple. Very deep. Really rich and winning. Much more mouth-filling than the other wines from this stable. Really fresh but broad and ripe. Great freshness. Long and beautifully balanced. 13.6%." JancisRobinson.com
