Grand Vin Saint-Julien 2007
“This Saint-Julien has settled into a groove; in fact, I envisage it maturing with style over the next 15-20 years.” – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
The very much in-form Château Léoville-Poyferré should be firmly on the radar of any Bordeaux lover. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc elegantly presents cassis, dark cherries and hedgerow berries, alongside graphite, mocha, Moroccan mint tea and an array of herbs and spices. Modern and rich, especially considering the vintage, you can think outside the box with the food matches: Mexican mole, grouse with figs, braised red cabbage, Nigel Slater’s lamb shanks with anchovy, or aubergine claypot rice.
Releasing a string of exceptional wines since 2000 under the watchful eye of Didier Cuvelier, Château Léoville-Poyferré is often lauded by respected critics as being one of the most consistent producers in all of Bordeaux. In Neal Martin’s view, what they create is “wine for lovers of modern, stylish Claret… for the oenophile, not the profit-hunter”, i.e. great wine to drink rather than buying for investment purposes.
