International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 132

($39-$70) Bright ruby-red. Very expressive nose offers redcurrant, tobacco, flowers and nutty oak. Supple, silky and pliant but with good energy to its red fruit and floral flavors. Finishes with broad, sweet tannins and a lingering note of tobacco. This remains quite open and appears to be evolving very much like the 2001.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 171

Along with Leoville Las Cases and a few others, this is among the stars of the appellation. Made in a more floral, supple, Margaux-like style, the deep ruby/purple-hued 2004 Leoville Poyferre exhibits sweet, broad flavors, and plenty of tannin lurking beneath the surface. However, the abundant cherry, black currant, licorice, and smoke notes obscure the tannic clout. This rich, powerful, broad beauty should be drinkable in 2-3 years, and last for two decades.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Very clean, with blackberry, currant and light vanilla aromas. Full and juicy, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Impressive despite a slightly hollow midpalate. Wait and see as this grows in the bottle. May be a bit overextracted this year. 20,830 cases made.

Excellent, plenty of soft silky tannins, great fruit behind them, should be outstanding in another 2 years

Inky-plummy; classy oak; sweet plum & cassis; a whiff of banana; classic cedary note of this chateau; very cassis-dominated. Already enjoyable, unlike many of the '04s.

Again, it?s unfair for this estate to be compared to it?s previous year?s classic performance, but one can'thelp but make these types of contrasts. Sweet cherry, rose and sage hints are attractive and full of charm. The palate is round and full, with pretty red fruit and floral undertones that have excellent proportion. Not at all a blockbuster, but very well done.
