Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2001
|Brand||Chateau Leoville Poyferre|
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Julien|
Sweet notions of plums, black currants, caramel, and spicy oak are provocative and alluring. Subtle but substantial, layered, and textured, with medium body as well as sexy, up-front flavors, low acidity, and ripe tannin, this beauty is among the most evolved and flamboyant of the appellation. Nevertheless, it should age well.
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
Smoky and rich with lots of spice and berries. Medium- to full-bodied, with very good tannins with soft and silky texture and a medium finish. Not as impressive in bottle as barrel, but outstanding.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
