Alcohol of 14%. A massively dark and brooding nose is more reminiscent of the 2010s from Pauillac and gives the wine an initial impression of being a beast. It actually stays very nicely in focus on the palate as dark purple and black fruit blend with fine tannins and enough bright acidity to keep the wine lively. Silky texture and great structure. Wow - this is really a gorgeous wine and a star of the vintage. Best after 2020.

Full-bodied, dense purple in color, with floral notes intermixed with blackberries, cassis, graphite and spring flowers, this full-bodied, legendary effort is long and opulent, with wonderfully abundant yet sweet tannin, a skyscraper-like mid-palate and a thrilling, nearly one-minute finish. This spectacular effort from Poyferre that should drink well for 30+ years. 98+ - Robert Parker

A wine of architectural strength and classical proportions, this has straight lines that mark the packed, concentrated fruits, which are sustained by its tannins. This is certainly the best wine that Léoville-Poyferré has produced, sumptuous while so finely structured.

The Leoville-Poyferre 2010 dares to challenge Jean-Hubert Delon! It has a wonderful bouquet with vibrant blackcurrant, raspberry and warm gravel scents - very well defined and very focused, the oak seamlessly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with a very pure opening, a fine line of acidity, a cashmere texture and a long silky smooth finish that is very seductive and feminine. There is a lot of panache here - utterly seductive.

Wow. Very intense and aromatic nose with crushed currants and blueberries with hints of nuts and dried flowers. Full body, with very refined tannins and a lovely undercurrent of fruit. Balanced and juicy. Better in 2018.

Good deep ruby-red. Blueberry, crushed cassis and graphite minerality on the youthfully medicinal nose. Plush, broad and deep, but with tangy acidity giving shape and lift to the dark berry and violet flavors. This... Good deep ruby-red. Blueberry, crushed cassis and graphite minerality on the youthfully medicinal nose. Plush, broad and deep, but with tangy acidity giving shape and lift to the dark berry and violet flavors. This spreads out to saturate every square millimeter of the palate. As dominated by its tannic structure as this is today, it's a remarkably civilized wine. Give it a decade in the cellar and then enjoy it over the following 20 years. 94+

Features a coating of warm cocoa, with notes of solid currant paste, steeped fig and blackberry fruit. The pastis- and graphite-filled finish pumps along, revealing a well-embedded structure that should soften in the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2030. – JM
