Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) Deep ruby-red. Plum, currant and sexy cedary oak on the nose. At once sweet and vinous, with juicy acidity giving lift to the flavors of currant, licorice and minerals. Finishes firm and long, with a ...

    From the fruit of Leoville-Poyferre’s younger vines in the heart of St Julien and mirroring the style of its big brother, the Pavillon is strikingly pure and refined. The nose gives bright, fresh fruit - morello cherries, sloes and hints of cedar and oak. Very much an example of a modern, flashy St. Julien, the palate is dense and opulent - full of the soft, yielding fruit for which the 2009's are famous, all held taut by a fine weave of tannic structure. There is pin-sharp detail here - generous enough to enjoy now, but clearly with enough depth to fill out over the next year or two. Exceptional value, this offers a glimpse of the 100 point Grand Vin, for a tenth of the price.

    RP100 Drink 2018-2040 One of the more flamboyant and sumptuous wines of the vintage, this inky/purple-colored St.-Julien reveals thrilling levels of opulence, richness and aromatic pleasures. A soaring bouquet of creme de cassis, charcoal, graphite and spring flowers is followed by a super-concentrated wine with silky tannins, stunning amounts of glycerin, a voluptuous, multilayered mouthfeel and nearly 14% natural alcohol. Displaying fabulous definition for such a big, plump, massive, concentrated effort, I suspect the tannin levels are high even though they are largely concealed by lavish amounts of fruit, glycerin and extract. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040.

    rp 100 4시간 브리딩에도 단단한 탄닌과 붉은 베리향이 강하게 혀를 자극. 약한 커피맛에 은은한 단맛이 잘 균형을 이룸 의외로 피니쉬는 부드러워 부담스럽지 않은 감기 탓 ?
