1997 Château Léoville Poyferré

Community Tasting Note


88 Points

Monday, March 14, 2011 - Cork in good condition, no leakage or off-smells. Quite a dark colour and a little murky in the glass. Nose is cedar, dark fruits, leather, quite a strong impression of farmyard. Taste is complex, leathery, sweaty, aniseed, spicy fruit compote, tannins have almost gone now, it is very smooth to taste. Actually it is delightful to sip it and reveal the different flavours. The only negative point would be it is slightly short. Nice surprise for me as I thought it might have faded by now, but it was still alive although I wouldn't leave it much longer, this was my last one.
