|Brand||Chateau Leoville Poyferre|
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Julien|
Dense ruby/purple, with sweet blackberry and black currant fruit with hints of smoke, espresso roast, and new saddle leather, this is another impressively endowed but tannic, backward style of wine. The concentration, brightness, and depth are all present, but I can't see it being even approachable in less than 5-7 years. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
Blackberry, licorice and blueberry aromas lead to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a clean finish. Firm and attractive.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
