The 1966 Léoville Poyferré is a very attractive wine, which blossoms in the decanter to reveal a detailed bouquet of lifted red and black fruit, cedar, Cuban cigar and graphite-like soil tones. Precise and firm at the core, with the relatively high acids that are characteristic of the vintage, this is leaner than some of its peers, but also quite a concentrated, characterful Poyferré that has retained its youthful juicy vibrancy and cut.
Klar, dyp rødoransje med klar kant. Mild nese med lær, sopp, tobakk og innslag av røde bær. Frisk og klar frukt med grei fylde. Bløt og glatt, mangler litt konsentrasjon. Bløte, nedslipte tanniner. Tørr utgang med svakt sursøt frukt. Fin lengde.
