Absolutely spectacular the1990 Leoville Poyferre is much more evolved than either of its two Leoville neighbors. Its opaque plum/garnet color is accompanied by a gorgeous bouquet of smoke charcoal creme de cassis and flowers. Fleshy and opulent it comes across like a St.-Julien with a Pomerol texture and allure. This beauty has reached full maturity where it should remain for another two decades.

A chewy wine with impressively rich aromas and flavors of ripe plum tobacco cedar and earth aromas and flavors and attractive velvety tannins. Drink after 1998. 18500 cases made. –JS

Medium ruby-red. Extravagant aromas of currant loam leather and graphite; like the 1990 in its roasted character. Then sweet and dense but with surprising aromatic lift in the mouth not to mention considerable power... Medium ruby-red. Extravagant aromas of currant loam leather and graphite; like the 1990 in its roasted character. Then sweet and dense but with surprising aromatic lift in the mouth not to mention considerable power. Liqueur-like black fruit licorice and mineral flavors really stain the palate. Cuvelier maintained that this vintage was not acidified. The cabernet acidity he said was healthy and the grape skins gave up their acidity slowly during the vinification. A very impressive showing and built to last.
