2000 Château Léoville Poyferré

Community Tasting Note


93 Points

Saturday, December 29, 2012 - This wine was purchased at Veritas - NYC from the owners personal cellar. Cork was in the best condition I have personally seen in a 2000. Purchased direct from winery and stored impecably. Deep dark purple to the rim, great aromatics of dark fruit. Full bodied, strong legs. Palate was very complex with layers of dark fruit, cassis, some sweetness, integrated tannins. Actually somewhat youthful so I will be interested to see how my remaining bottles at home develop. Finish with spice and fruit lingered. Went exquistely with Veal chop which was the best Veal chop I have ever had. Highly recommend wine and restaurant.
