Maybe, just maybe, this is the year owner Didier Cuvelier will finally see his estate get the credit he deserves. This is an exciting, exotic wine, with rich, racy, mocha coffee flavours complimenting the utterly intoxicating black fruit. Huge tannins and a firm structure make this a wine for the long term (not unusual for Poyferré), but unlike so many other wines in 2006 it has the concentration of fruit to support it. This elegant Claret is arguably the second best wine in St Julien behind Léoville-Las Cases, and certainly offers outstanding value.
