1982 Château Léoville Poyferré St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend

1982 Leoville Poyferre remains one of the best values from the normally, very expensive 1982 vintage. Tobacco, truffle, earth, cassis, cedar wood and cigar ash create the complex perfume. Concentrated, full bodied and rich in texture, the wine offers a big mouthful of sweet, ripe, cassis, blackberry and spice. For a 30 year old wine, this is still young, fresh and vibrant. Well stored examples could easily age and improve for another 20 or more years.

Another great 1989; another great Pichon Baron. Compared to Pichon Baron 1990 this has more elegance and nuance. It's less powerful but it wins on the side of the detail. Very pretty nose with lots of black fruits mixed in with several tertiary notes of chocolate, dark wood, earth and smoke. Medium to full-body, with nice minerality and acidity. Tannins well solved and integrated. A real beauty!
