2005 Château Léoville Poyferré

Community Tasting Note


94 Points

Saturday, April 28, 2012 - This is really nice and unmistakenly, Bordeaux. Darkish, plum red in color with sediment finely and evenly distributed all around the glass. The nose gives scents of sweet soil with herbs, forest floor, and plums. Has a soft and savory mouthfeel, light to medium weight in body, but with just a drip of sugar on the finish. The alcohol is masked very well and intertwined on the palate with plums, cedar, and a good line of acidity, it's like a food. Real phenomenal balance of hedonism and restraint. The world might be full of drunks if a wine like this were plentiful and cheap. 93-94+
