Château Léoville Poyferré- Packshot

Château Léoville Poyferré 2006

A great 2006. Comparable to 1996 ?

The vines benefited from very similar weather conditions to 2005 until September. The careful mastery of  vine-care techniques followed by well-adapted vinification methods have brought out the full quality potential of this vintage, revealing a remarkable wine, more marked by the Cabernet Sauvignon than usual, comparable to 1996.


Press review

The Wine Advocate – Robert Parker  9193

Beautiful, vibrant, black raspberry and cassis fruit, fresh acidity, medium to full body, superb ripeness, melted tannins, and a long savory, expansive mouthfeel are found in this top-notch St-Julien . Friendlier than the more backward, tannic 2005 Léoville Poyferré, the 2006 should be at its finest between 2011-2028.
