2005 Château Léoville Poyferré

Community Tasting Note


96 Points

Friday, October 7, 2011 - To start with; this wine has become more and more new world style over the last decade; very luxurious, young already delicious and certainly the potential for ageing. This bottle; very luxurious bouquet with smoky oak, cassis, cigar box, graphite etc. On the palate the same impressions as well as some caramel. Very tempting and modern with a classical touch. Early puberty stage now. Keep this until 2020 and then try it (again). Will be worth waiting for. If you own several cases; try one each year; it is a feast already! 96-97+
