Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2eme Cru Classe, Saint-Julien

Description

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. 18–20 months in French oak, 80% new. Malo in barrel. pH 3.66. Deep, slightly smudgy crimson. Still vibrant though a hint of deep brick-red at the rim. It actually smells a little of warm bricks too. Spicy with a hint of incense but still plenty of lively dark-red fruit. Just beginning to show some tertiary notes but not yet undergrowth, more seductively sweet spice. Extremely inviting. On the palate, more tension than in the 2017 and more sinewy but that just increases the freshness. Chewy, finely grained texture also gives freshness. Moreish and like a trailer for future complexity. Lovely balance between fruit and structure in a more modest vintage (in terms of power). Spicy character increases with aeration.
