Decanted for 2 hours. Garnet red with a brownish rim. Beautiful nose of cigar box with cassis and other black fruits. The palate was dominated by acidity rather than tannins which were completely resolved. Not much persistence on the finish. Still nice, but starting to fade. If you have a bottle in your cellar, it needs drinking.
XMas Caroling - Magnum - drinking very beautifully. Certainly not a blockbuster, but the nose has a lot of energy and depth. Silky wine with soft sweet tannins and dark fruit notes. Short finish, but still very enjoyable.
Had at a Christmas Party out of a Magnum. The nose was amazing with a nice hint of oak. It was a very soft wine with some fruit still hanging around. The only shortfall was the short finish, but was still a very nice holiday treat. I love all of the wines from Poyferre as well as the other Leoville's.
Dark red. At first a beautiful bouquet with cassis and luxurious oak. A few hours later this beautiful bouquet has faded. On the palate cassis as well as red berry fruits, firm acidity and a little bitterness in the finish. Overall the wine is ok, but a little disappointing because it has a little bit too much acidity and the finish is quite short. Nevertheless a really pleasurable wine and at its peak now.
