International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 163

(a blend of 62.5% cabernet sauvignon, 29% merlot, 6% petit verdot and 2.5% cabernet franc): Bright medium ruby. Classic Saint-Julien aromas of cassis, licorice, tar, minerals and dark chocolate. Lush, sweet and powerful, with a superb glyceral texture to the dark berry and dark chocolate flavors. Huge wine but not at all heavy. The extremely long, echoing finish features utterly noble tannins that saturate the front teeth. Offers a show-stopping combination of sweetness and structure. Built for three decades of life in bottle.

Deep crimson. Toasty, sappy, invigorating nose. Lovely smooth texture almost suggests there are no tannins; they just sneak up on you at the very end. Very dramatic and very pleasing. Quite a contrast to the dogged austerity of the other Léovilles!

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 199

One of the more flamboyant and sumptuous wines of the vintage, this inky/purple-colored St.-Julien reveals thrilling levels of opulence, richness and aromatic pleasures. A soaring bouquet of creme de cassis, charcoal, graphite and spring flowers is followed by a super-concentrated wine with silky tannins, stunning amounts of glycerin, a voluptuous, multilayered mouthfeel and nearly 14% natural alcohol. Displaying fabulous definition for such a big, plump, massive, concentrated effort, I suspect the tannin levels are high even though they are largely concealed by lavish amounts of fruit, glycerin and extract.

Wine Spectator Author: James Molesworth

Solid notes of steeped black currant, ganache-coated fig and plum eau de vie pump along in this very dark red, but with well-integrated structure. Long and winey through the finish, with the grip extending everything.

The 2009 is a fabulous, big and exquisite Leoville Poyferre. RP rating 100 he wine is terrific to drink now but I would hold for a few years, and but more now.
