    (Chateau Léoville-Poyferré St Julien) Between the preceding two wines, the Barton pair of Langoa and Léoville, in terms of aromatic expression, perhaps with a slightly darker grain of fruit, richer and rather more intense. Great, pure, very stylish, a slightly more creamy presence on the palate than Barton, still with a very fine layer of structure beneath. Great tannic core, really rather grippy, although it certainly has the substance to cope. Fine acids too, bright and lifted fruit presence. Without doubt this is the equal of Barton, and it is great to see Poyferré perform at this level these days. Stylistically different, fleshier and more exotic perhaps, but certainly lovely quality here.

    (Chateau Léoville-Poyferré St Julien) A great colour, and a wonderful purity on the nose, with essence of dark summer berry fruits being the order of the day, with a touch of white pepper. This has great depth and is clearly very impressive. It has a ripe, balanced, rounded composition, it is very firmly glued together, but has a sweet, harmonious character which is immediately appealing. There are ripe, svelte tannins which show through only at the finish. Very nicely judged extract. Very fine indeed.
