Château Léoville-Poyferré (St Julien) 2006: A little more open than the Léoville-Barton, more expressive, full of iron-bound clay and earth, overlaid with a crisp fruit character, crunchy autumn leaves, depth and freshness intertwined. Yes, it is as enticing as I hope it sounds. The flesh on the palate has a soft and broad character, polished, not quite the fine vigour of the Barton, although there is grip and some fine acids to be found here. Very attractive, substantial and long but I think for me the Barton just edges it, even if a return for a second taste reveals a more firm and upright character than I first noted. From a 2006 Bordeaux tasting at four years of age. 17.5+/20 (November 2010) The Wine Doctor
Château Léoville-Poyferré (St Julien) 2006: This has a lovely character on the nose, beautifully sweet fruit, in a very different fashion to the corresponding Barton, with a much more open, accessible style. The fruit is dense though, and on the palate it is supple, with ripe tannins showing quite dry through the midpalate, and with nice acidity too. This is good. From a tasting of 2006 Bordeaux at two years of age. 17+/20 (October 2008)  The Wine Doctor
