Rockss and Fruit

  • By Lyle Fass

    (Leoville-Poyferre) A glorious wine if a bit young. Tobacco, rich cassis fruits, some spicey oak and minerality on the nose. The palate is quite massive with extremeley concentrated fruit and thrilling ripeness but wonderful smokey, tobacco, mineral character. Sweet and ripe tannins carry the finish. Excellent acids too.

    (Chateau Léoville-Poyferré St Julien) Another intense, red-purple wine. The nose doesn't give too much - some sweet mineral-edged fruit. Quite classy. Bags of structure on the palate. It's a massive, hard wine, with hidden fruit and plenty of tannin. Moderate acidity. Five years in the cellar needed here.
