Tasting notes

Robert Parker
Tasted: 01/06/2004
Drink: 2004-2016


Sweet notions of plums, black currants, caramel, and spicy oak are provocative and alluring. Subtle but substantial, layered, and textured, with medium body as well as sexy, up-front flavors, low acidity, and ripe tannin, this beauty is among the most evolved and flamboyant of the appellation. Nevertheless, it should age well. Anticipated maturity: now-2016.

Robert Parker
Tasted: 01/04/2003
Drink: 2003-2018


Showing well and continuing to add weight and depth, the 2001 Leoville Poyferre has a saturated ruby/purple color and an elegant, sweet nose of black cherries, cassis, vanilla, and espresso in a dense, layered, ripe, suave/savory style. The wine should be drinkable relatively early and last for 15 or more years.
