  • Double-decanted at 8am, left the cork out and served at 4pm. As with my previous experience here, this is just fantastic. Leaves me at a loss for words as I choose not to formulate a tasting note, but rather to take it all in. This is gorgeous; I want more, lots more. highly recommended

    Served non-blind.

  • Deep red with violet hues and inky black center. Stunning nose of blackberry, graphite, ink and subtle floral notes. Black fruit notes on the palate with anise, graphite, and mint. Long blackberry finish. All of this supported by mild acidity, grippy tannins and appropriate alcohol (13.5%). The wine in this bottle was really in a good place. Perhaps a little early in the drinking window, but in the window nonetheless. Concentrated, intense, and absolutely beautiful!

    This, after 3 hours in the decanter. It did develop in the glass.

  • I'm a little disappointed after seeing all the high scores on here. Typical northern medoc at first but then the fruit is a little stewed and a bit drying on the finish. Maybe a little unresolved and will improve. This was 1st bottle out of a case so will leave for a few more years before trying again. I seem to consistently find this Chateau the weakest of the 3 Leovilles.

  • Decanted our deep purple delight for two hours and this lady has climbed to classic in structure without losing her full bodied saturated, luscious mouth feel. Rich black and blue fruit, aromas of clove, nuance of nutmeg, sweet chocolate and roasted coffee, cassis, sweet myrrh, and hyacinth support why this special wine and many St. Julien’s are saints to remember. Finishes like a marathoner.

    (Chateau Léoville-Poyferré St Julien) Dark, exotic fruit nose. Damsons, with a hint of blackcurrant. Ripe, balanced, seamless structure. It has a gentle elegance, with creamy fruit and a peppery edge. Really gentle, fine tannins and correct acidity. This is very good indeed. Certainly the equal of Léoville Barton, if not slightly ahead.
