CHÂTEAU LÉOVILLE-POYFERRÉ 2009 (6) 93 WS 100 WA


CHÂTEAU LÉOVILLE-POYFERRÉ 2009 SAINT-JULIEN. 2IÈME CRU CLASSÉ ONE OF THE MORE FLAMBOYANT AND SUMPTUOUS WINES OF THE VINTAGE, THIS INKY/PURPLE-COLORED ST.-JULIEN REVEALS THRILLING LEVELS OF OPULENCE, RICHNESS AND AROMATIC PLEASURES. A SOARING BOUQUET OF CREME DE CASSIS, CHARCOAL, GRAPHITE AND SPRING FLOWERS IS FOLLOWED BY A SUPER-CONCENTRATED WINE WITH SILKY TANNINS, STUNNING AMOUNTS OF GLYCERIN, A VOLUPTUOUS, MULTILAYERED MOUTHFEEL AND NEARLY 14% NATURAL ALCOHOL. DISPLAYING FABULOUS DEFINITION FOR SUCH A BIG, PLUMP, MASSIVE, CONCENTRATED EFFORT, I SUSPECT THE TANNIN LEVELS ARE HIGH EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE LARGELY CONCEALED BY LAVISH AMOUNTS OF FRUIT, GLYCERIN AND EXTRACT. ANTICIPATED MATURITY: 2018-2040. 93 WS 100 WA 6 BTS. PER LOT $1,400 - $1,800
