    September 6, 2019 - 2nd time having this vintage over the span of 2 months and confirm that it is in its prime drinking window. PnP. Lovely nose only needed 30 mins to open up. Drink up

    July 17, 2019 - Just a delightful bottle of Bordeaux. Allow it to open up in the glass. Nice complexity, cherries, dark fruits, with leather and earth. A terrific wine in a bargain year.

    June 8, 2019 - WOTN... mid-weight, gorgeousness. Curranty, with oak beautifully in check. lovely balance and sumptuous throughout. Balanced too. In very fine form.

    June 7, 2019 - This has suddenly burst into life, and is drinking at its very best. I still maintain that this should be consumed over the next couple of years to have it at its peak. As stated previously, this could be mistaken for a wine a decade or more older. It is all about blackcurrant and cedar, with a sharpness on the finish. However, whereas as previously this was distracting, it now is well balanced and harmonious with the rest of the wine. Minimum time in the decanter is needed, and indeed I find that there is a deterioration in the glass after a couple of hours.

    May 24, 2019 - Terrifically vigorous, exciting claret so brimming with focused, rich cassis, blueberry, mineral, cedar and touches of mocha and espresso. Really vital. Still quite young, but a sign of the renaissance at Leoville Poyferre.
