Leoville Poyferre, Saint-Julien 2019


Region: Saint-Julien, Bordeaux

Tasting note:

67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot

“Tasted alongside the 2018 vintage, many 2019s are identifiable by their slightly less dense concentration in the glass, although that does not seem to be the case here! It is as good as opaque in the glass, and the nose is loaded with a correspondingly intense array of sweet fruits, all cranberry and blackcurrant, dusted with crushed chalk and vanilla flower. The palate is unsurprisingly brooding at this early stage, with a dense and medium-bodied presence through the middle, the fruit here wrapped up in warm but ripe and tightly compacted tannins. Smartly integrated, this has an impressively long and opulent finish. A more traditional grip and a perhaps also a little more balance than the 2018 vintage. Great potential though. The declared alcohol is 13%.”
