Beautifully dense this generous rich wine combines great fruit with a firm but sweet structure. The new wood element is still prominent but this is now beginning to blend well with the ripe fruit. To finish the tannins... Beautifully dense this generous rich wine combines great fruit with a firm but sweet structure. The new wood element is still prominent but this is now beginning to blend well with the ripe fruit. To finish the tannins reassert themselves.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Léoville Poyferré has one of the most harmonious and complete bouquets from Saint Julien: very well-defined blackberry, briary and chalky scents, real focus and delivery here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, ripe tannin matched with well-judged acidity. Like the 2006 Léoville-Barton, it is stubborn and backward, but there is clearly harmony and focus on the finish, the new oak deftly assimilated in the fabric of the wine. This is a lovely wine from Didier Cuvelier. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin

Lush sweet and full with superripe yet backward flavors of dark berries dark chocolate and minerals. Wonderfully layered structured wine whose excellent vinosity and firm tannins call for several years of patience. 91 points

Blackberry licorice and blueberry aromas lead to a medium- to full-bodied palate with fine tannins and a clean finish. Firm and attractive. Best after 2014. -JS

Strawberry and light sweet tobacco aromas up front are surrounded by rich roasted blackberries. Sweet and lush on the entry this wine fills the mouth very well. Ripe raspberries push through the mid-palate on to the finish and are paired with a nice lingering spicy clove.
