    October 2, 2019 - Opened this lovely 55 year old wine and literally PNP after abt one hour. Lovely nose and still has great structure and acidity.

    August 28, 2016 - The '64 Poyferré is an attractive wine from an era in which this estate seems to be a touch under-rated. A classic bouquet of cassis, cedar and gravely soil tones is followed by a juicy, supple wine with plenty of fruit and energy. This isn't on the level of the best '64 Médocs I've tasted, including Latour and Pichon Lalande, but it is a lovely drink.

    May 12, 2016 - Very nice old claret. Still some black fruit left in the background, some smoky green character, tannins almost totally resolved, this is super beefy and savory. Not surprisingly, goes well with beef.

    January 8, 2016 - Showed a bit funky and prune/raisin like nose upon opening. Needed a good hour to show more range of fruit. Really enjoyable after an hour in the glass/decanter.

    October 25, 2015 - Violet color with a small halo. Complex bouquet that is typical for the well aged Bordeaux: cedar , game and tobacco along with some medium red fruits. Integrated flavors with medium red fruit repeated. The body is thinning and that pairs well with the finish. It can carry a a special meal and evening.
