The spectacular 2003 Leoville Poyferre exhibits a dense purple color with a touch of lightening at the edge as well as notes of creosote, barbecue smoke, jammy black currants, licorice and spice box. This intense, voluptuously textured, full-bodied St.-Julien possesses low acidity and ripe tannin. Still fresh and exuberant, it is just entering its plateau of full maturity where it should remain for 10-15+ years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Huge wine. Very very impressive. This is one of the big surprises of the vintage. Best after 2012. 19165 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.
