About this Item

2010 Saint-Julien
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

The estate of Léoville Poyferré dates back to 1638 when it was the largest domain in the Médoc. The estate’s vineyard practices were well ahead of their time, and are in fact still widely used today. Léoville Poyferré was recognized as a Second Classified Growth in 1855 and has always been one of the most prestigious estates of this terroir.

Critics Ratings

‘A wine of architectural strength and classical proportions, this has straight lines that mark the packed, concentrated fruits, which are sustained by its tannins. This is certainly the best wine that Léoville-Poyferré has produced, sumptuous while so finely structured.’ - Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 98/100 (Feb 2013)

'Lower proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon than in most vintages. Deep garnet with ruby rim and opaque core. Funnily enough this smells very Cabernet. Lots of blackcurrant and cedar but with air this shows itself to be rather ripe and decadent with a touch of damson fruit, even dried fruits. Very little evolution in the aroma just ripeness and power. The flavour is showing a more tertiary character with just the start of undergrowth and little bit leathery. Powerful and chewy in texture but just a little bit rustic. A big rather than an elegant wine. Powerful, thick tannins but I am not sure the fruit has the freshness and vibrancy for a very very long life, despite my general expectations of the vintage. Tails away a little on the finish.’ - Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20 (Mar 2022)

‘Features a coating of warm cocoa, with notes of solid currant paste, steeped fig and blackberry fruit. The pastis- and graphite-filled finish pumps along, revealing a well-embedded structure that should soften in the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2030.’ - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 93/100 (Mar 2013)
