Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2011
– Lược xem: 10
The 2011 has a deep, dense color, very saturated, with a nose that is fine and complex, with a very pure expression of fruit and notes of cedar. The palate is full and powerful, with a fleshy and densemid-palate, carried by the rich tannins. There is an exquisite finish supported by a sublime tannic structure, fine, elegant andbalanced.

Ripe, fruity and powerful, this wine has intense Cabernet black-currant flavors, with plenty of richness and concentration. It shows the acidity and the bright fruit of the year.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (94)
This property, which has been on a qualitative tear over the last generation, has produced one of the most successful wines of 2011. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, it is broad, rich, medium to full-bodied and dense. It boasts an inky/purple color as well as lots of concentration, silky tannins, and a bigger, richer mouthfeel than any of its St.-Julien peers. The result is one of the stars of the vintage.
Wine Spectator (92)
Shows a warm charcoal note from the start, backed by melted fig, crushed blackberry and steeped black currant fruit. A strong graphite edge pins down the finish. Dark in profile, but defined and well-suited to mid-term cellaring. A very solid effort.
James Suckling (92)
This shows a currant and berries with dark chocolate character. Full and chewy with a bright acidity. Structured too. A little austere. Wait and see. Only about 40% of the normal production. 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot.
