International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 126

($125-$150) Medium ruby-red. Extravagant aromas of currant, loam, leather and graphite; like the 1990 in its roasted character. Then sweet and dense but with surprising aromatic lift in the mouth, not to mention considerable power. Liqueur-like black fruit, licorice and mineral flavors really stain the palate. Cuvelier maintained that this vintage was not acidified. The cabernet acidity, he said, was healthy and the grape skins gave up their acidity slowly during the vinification. A very impressive showing, and built to last.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 214

The spectacular 2003 Leoville Poyferre exhibits a dense purple color with a touch of lightening at the edge as well as notes of creosote, barbecue smoke, jammy black currants, licorice and spice box. This intense, voluptuously textured, full-bodied St.-Julien possesses low acidity and ripe tannin. Still fresh and exuberant, it is just entering its plateau of full maturity where it should remain for 10-15+ years.

Pure cassis on the nose. Impressive. Full-bodied, thick and powerful, with loads of fruit and big, velvety tannins. Goes on for minutes on the palate. Huge wine. Very, very impressive. This is one of the big surprises of the vintage.

Wow! I tried this a few years ago and resolved to wait. It was worth it. The nose was distinctive and quite strong. Initial notes of earth and old furniture on the nose along with a bit of spice. Mouthfeel is good and the initial flavor and tannins give way to rich coating layers of fruit and a taut and lingering finish. This was a stellar bottle.

Lots of up-front fruit, soft and ready. Lite soft tannins with light acidity. The wine is ready to drink.
