Tasting Notes

Cassis, sweet morello cherry and subtle spice on the nose, with a fleshy, approachable structure, this is a charming Poyferré of obvious appeal that should allow followers of this popular second growth to enjoy it both in its youth as well as in a decade or more. There is depth too with earthy, mineral notes combining with the fleshy fruit. Drink 2015-2030 - 15.5 points

Reviews & Scores

This powerful, dense, full-bodied 2008 is still backward and unevolved, but it possesses a dense purple color as well as sweet aromas of creme de cassis, vanillin, crushed rocks, and flowers. With high but ripe tannin and a long finish, this wine will benefit from 5-8 years of cellaring, and should keep for three decades thereafter. - 92-94 points
