    (Chateau Léoville-Poyferré (St Julien)) The assemblage here is 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, the pH 3.7, and the alcohol comes in at 14%. Léoville-Poyferré, by comparison with Léoville-Barton, has a slightly less dense, more vibrant crimson hue. There is though a denser style to the fruit here, more damson and cherry, dusted with sweet icing sugar; I suspect this reflects the 30% Merlot. The palate is amazing though, showing a very relaxed and elegant start, with an almost juicy feel as it sits in a very open and relaxed style, underpinned by firm grainy tannins and very subtle, tingling acidity. This is very fine in its composition. Again, silky is the word here. Very fine indeed.
