(Historic vertical tasting of all Léoville Poyferré's kosher cuvées 1999-2005, Savyon, February 11th 2014) Dark garnet with a bit of browning at the rim with on the nose heavy notes of oxidation such as butterscotch and caramel hiding some black fruit and prunes. Full bodied, this wine has a very big body, tannins are quite big and have yet to integrate and the acidity is definitely there and shows great structure but other than caramel, spices and mocha not much to taste here fruit-wise, fairly long finish. Obviously a flawed bottle, that happens .
