Château Léoville Poyferré 2007
A truly “charming vintage”
Despite generally difficult weather conditions, thanks to Man’s hard work and the exceptional terroir, along with the more clement weather in September, a « charming » vintage was born.
Our tasting note
Shiny and limpid, the 2007 vintage displays an intense garnet color accented by vermeil highlights.
Exceptionally aromatic, this wine is marked by an incredible freshness from pronounced notes of mint and licorice. Upon aeration, intense fruit, toast, and spicy aromas come together with the lovely freshness, giving us a complex and surprising bouquet.
Showing great finesse on the attack, dense tannins follow adding more structure to the whole. The wine expands on the the mid-palate, carried by aromas of black fruits and toast. The pleasant finish underlines the freshness and subtlety of great Saint-Julien wines.
