    (POYFERRE Leoville) 1990/Pomerol

    Dear Friends,

    Two finds to wrap up an eventful day - thanks to everyone that has inquired regarding the Blue Hill Event - Niki will get back to everyone shortly:

    2005 Lagrange (Pomerol)

    This wine remains an enigma and I have a parcel at less than first tranche pricing. The winery's refusal to allow most journalists from sampling (and subsequently reviewing) the wine has a US populous that would be eager to support the estate scratching their heads? 2005 was such a strong vintage in Pomerol that it would have been very difficult to mess things up. Secretive or not, this could be a major bargain a decade from now as Pomerol does not cost this little in a vintage like 2005.

    1990 Leoville Poyferre 1.5lt (Saint Julien)
    This wine is quickly becoming a legend - it has surpassed what anyone originally thought possible. It was always highly thought of but the 750ml I had last month was among the finest wines of this precocious vintage - in magnum all bets are off. VERY RARE in magnum and sure to keep escalating in price:

    Thank you,

    Jon Rimmerman

    A Mega 1990 Bordeaux Tasting with Clive, 3/21/2005 93 points

    (Leoville Poyferre) was a bit horsy as well with its earth and green field aromas. The wine was taut with a hidden core of ripe, cassis fruit. The palate was very tasty, long and earthy with nice, ripe fruit. Clive was very impressed, scoring it 18/20
