Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 92

($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.

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.

About This Producer


Classified as a Second Growth estate, Château Léoville Poyferré is a rising star in Bordeaux, well-known for its aromatic and velvety wines. In recent years, the style has leaned toward a more complex and rich nature, and the estate has been receiving increasingly positive reviews. The vineyards are planted to a majority Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc comprising the remainder. The Saint-Julien property has been owned by the Cuvelier family since 1921, and Didier Cuvelier has been in charge of the estate since 1979. Much of the chateau's recent praise is due to Cuvelier, with the advice of consultant Michel Rolland, who has implemented many improvements to quality and style at Leoville Poyferre. In addition to its grand vin, the estate produces a second wine called Moulin Riche.
