    (Chateau Léoville-Poyferré (St Julien)) Really polished fruit on the nose here, smooth and creamy finish to it, with a sense of structure and gravity underpinning it. Almost sensuous on entry, revealing only glimpses of the tannic structure underneath, nicely hidden by a layer of well-judged fruit above. The fruit quality is fresh and kept buoyant by some lovely acidity. Elegance in abundance, manifesting as a silky composition on the palate, but with a high quality substance here. And certainly well-judged ripeness. Excellent wine with great potential, and one of the greats of the vintage, on the left bank at least.

    (Chateau Léoville-Poyferré St Julien) Dense fruit here, more meaty in style than the Barton equivalent. Fresh and supple on the palate, creamy, with black cherry character. Dense and rich, but with good tannin. Well balanced acids, substantial, very concentrated, with a meaty richness. It shows but fruit than the Barton, but it has the same backward structure, and lots of potential.

    (Château Léoville-Poyferré (St Julien)) Convincing aromatics to this vintage, with smoky oak, spicy fruit, overall certainly complex and a touch exotic too. The palate is supple, composed, stylish, integrated and very harmonious. There are some supple tannins, a nice substance of fruit, and a gentle grip to it all which builds to provide a much greater backbone towards the finish which is imbued with tannin and grip. A very impressive wine, one that I also highlighted at the UGC tasting two years ago. Certainly one of the better left bank wines in this vintage.
