Product Description:

"An intense and brilliant garnet color. Great aromatic complexity discovering roasted notes (coffee, mocha), freshness (menthol) and an intense fruit (blackcurrant); powerful attack, beautiful amplitude, soft tannins and elegant beautiful aftertaste where we find the aromas that we had in the nose. Refined with a young composition, Pavillon de Léoville Poyferré enjoys a fruity character with a palate pleasing finesse that is very rare to find for for a Bordeaux of its age. Serve with cooked roast beef crusted in salt; excellent with a rabbit with prunes or a wild boar stew, a venison, a supreme pigeon, deer hazelnut, beef stew and with cheese.2nd wine of chateau leoville poyferre. Run by cuvelier family since 1920." Importer
