Château Léoville-Poyfer Saint-Julien 2ème Grand Cru Classé

Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) It is broad, rich, medium to full-bodied and dense. It boasts an inky/purple color as well as lots of concentration, silky tannins, and a bigger, richer mouthfeel than any of its St.-Julien peers.
