Château-Leoville-Poyferre St. Julien 2015
Wine EnthusiastBarrel Sample. This is a generous, rounded, juicy wine, with already a fine balance between tannins and fruit. Black currant flavors are contrasted by a dry, solid core that shows the wine's impressive potential.
Wine SpectatorThis features depth and focus, with a really solid core of currant and blackberry lined with ample iron and briar notes. Not shy with the toast, but the finish is energetic, and everything is pulling together. (Barrel Tasting)
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Pavillon de Leoville Poyferre is medium garnet-purple in color with a nose of black fruits, earth, olives and savory notions. Medium-bodied, firm and taut in the mouth, it has lovely vibrancy and pleasantly grainy tannins, finishing long and earthy.
