flagBordeaux / France

One of the later harvested wines with the final Cabernets coming in at the beginning of October. The final blend is 58% Cab Sauv, 30% Merlot and 6% each of Cab Franc and Petit Verdot with a restrained (at least versus that last two vintages of Poyferre) alcohol level of 13.7%. It has a sweet, gently woody nose which with air releases violets and other lifted aromatics. It is deeply concentrated and with a formidable tannin index of 94 (this is approaching press wine levels!) however there is also wonderful purity to this year's Poyferre and its mid-palate is a riot of sticky fruit. It's modern of course but really of very fine quality. FINE+RARE
