2005 Château Léoville Poyferré

Community Tasting Note


89 Points

Thursday, April 29, 2010 - I am sorry to rate it so low compared to other CT users and WA... I do see the potential on this wine and for sure it will evolve incredibly well, so I am not gonna rate this wine for what I believe it will be, but rather what it tastes right now:
Great fruit (albeit with a "green" finish) and nice acidity with great long finish but somehow showing tremendous austerity and some high alcohol content... these last two throws the wine off balance.
I think it should rest at least another 5 years before consumed and then it will taste close to WA's 93 pts.
