Château Léoville Poyferré 2016 – Saint-Julien, 2ème Cru Classé

The nose is fresh, fine and offers concentration as well as a beautiful power (full of finesse!). It reveals notes of fresh/ripe blackberry and slight notes of wild fruits associated with discreet hints of fresh/ripe wild strawberry as well as slight notes of Timut pepper, mocha and toasted oak. The palate is fruity, juicy, well-balanced, relatively tight, precise/clean, straight, slightly fleshy and offers a nice unctuosity, deepness, a beautiful juiciness, suavity, concentration, a beautiful freshness as well as tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fresh/ripe blackberry, strawberry/wild red fruits and hints of fresh/ripe cassis associated with slight notes of toasted oak, a slight hint of caramelization as well as a discreet hint of flowers and a very discreet hint of spices. Tannins are fine and elegant.  Good length and persistence. It has a beautiful potential!
