Description

Robert Parker Jr.

100/100

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. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040.

Léoville Poyferré is renowned for producing a high quality wine and being very consistent from one vintage to another. This Second Grand Cru Classé offers a rich, harmonious style, worthy of its great gravelly terroir. In general, there are notes of cassis, blackberries, complemented by roasting and tobacco when the wine is more evolved. The generally numerous and firm tannins soften after 5 to 8 years, they are coated with a velvety and sensual texture which gives way to great depth.
