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.

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 wine out distances both Leoville Las Cases and Leoville Barton, but all three of them are compelling efforts. 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

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.

This is big with layers of succulent blackberry cassis and linzer torte pushed by sweet spice and a long graphite finish. Shows lots of smoky fleshy power but really sails along.

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.

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+

Looks very concentrated. Dark purple. Thick and rich. Some sweetness and lots of tannin. Everything but the kitchen sink in here. Super-concentrated. Should make great old bones. Very dry, long finish. 18/20
