2005 Château Léoville Poyferré

Community Tasting Note


91 Points

Monday, May 26, 2008 - Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux 2005 vintage tasting and dinner (Conrad Interntational, Singapore): UGC tasting. Not bad, but certainly not as good as expected, especially looking back at the last few vintages when the Poyferre had really stood out from St Julien. Lovely nose, with mint, cassis and earth. Great freshness, and firm, but fine tannins that showed a little bitter and spicy at the end. A little alcoholic heat. I'm not sure whether it is due to bottle variation, but I certainly am not as impressed by this as some of the other people who have tasted it.
