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.

It boasts an opaque purple color in addition to a sweet perfume of spring flowers black raspberries creme de cassis and a hint of spicy oak. This seamlessly constructed St.-Julien possesses massive concentration moderately high tannins abundant glycerin an unctuous texture remarkably fresh acids and wonderful precision. It will benefit from 5-6 years of cellaring and last 30-35 years.

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.

Leoville Poyferre From an assemblage of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon 30% Merlot 6% Petit Verdot along with 3% Cabernet Franc this wine reached 14% alcohol. Even at this degree of alcohol there is no feeling of heat. Smoke earth jammy dark berries and cassis scents produce the aromatics. This fresh chocolate covered cassis filled wine is big and almost brawny in style. Its beefy tannins and low pH combine freshness and power which are made better by the long cassis filled powerful finish. According to Didier Cuvelier 2010 reminds him of 2005. I see his point. B ut for me 2010 is more powerful while 2005 offers more elegance and charm.

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+

This is so velvety and beautiful with a juicy orange peel raspberries and currant character on the nose and the palate. Full with a long long finish. Wonderful texture to this wine. Dense and yummy.

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

Very concentrated and luscious looking. Exceptionally deep crimson. Very fine and sophisticated on the nose. Both concentration and lift but then perhaps just a bit too concentrated on the palate? Certainly very attention... Very concentrated and luscious looking. Exceptionally deep crimson. Very fine and sophisticated on the nose. Both concentration and lift but then perhaps just a bit too concentrated on the palate? Certainly very attention grabbing with lots of very ripe very dry fruit. Lustrous. With some welcoming appeal. Pure luscious Médoc Cabernet. Very long and vibrant. 17.5 out of 20.
