Red wine

Château Léoville Poyferré, 2ème cru classé 2019

RRP €70

Salty, black licorice nose with hints of sugar date, prunes and brambles. Darkness and brooding continue on the palate along with a driving salinity. Compact clutch of mouthcoating but velvety tannins occasionally releases a wisp of purple fruit or floral perfume; acidity is present but understated.
