2005 Château Léoville Poyferré

Community Tasting Note


91 Points

Tuesday, January 22, 2008 - 2005 Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux Tasting (Drake Hotel, Chicago, Illinois): 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petite Verdot. I was less impressed than many others. Soft tannins in this light to medium bodied wine. It had a soapy character which seemed out of place. Lacking in fruit because of the tannins and rustic in style. A far cry from the fabulous 2000. Parhaps a slightly off bottle? 90-91+ points.
