Château Léoville Poyferré, Bordeaux (St. Julien), 2éme Cru Classe, 2007, red wine from France
Opened by accident and not knowing the wine beforehand, late last summer I had a great experience drinking this Bordeaux. Not knowing too much about wine from Bordeaux, I later understood that this is something very nice. It is a rich red, very nice and balanced, as this richness isn’t heavy. Somehow a bit herbal and of course you can smell all kind of red and dark fruits. This wine is straightforward – in German: geradeaus – without any misleading or distracting extras.
I bought this wine at a big supermarket at Stiring Wendel, Lorraine. You can find it in online shops as well!
