The wine out distances both Leoville Las Cases and Leoville Barton, but all three of them are compelling efforts. Full-bodied, dense purple in color, with floral notes intermixed with blackberries, cassis, graphite and spring flowers, this full-bodied, legendary effort is long and opulent, with wonderfully abundant yet sweet tannin, a skyscraper-like mid-palate and a thrilling, nearly one-minute finish. This spectacular effort from Poyferre that should drink well for 30+ years.

A wine of architectural strength and classical proportions, this has straight lines that mark the packed, concentrated fruits, which are sustained by its tannins. This is certainly the best wine that Léoville-Poyferré has produced, sumptuous while so finely structured.

Good deep ruby-red. Blueberry, crushed cassis and graphite minerality on the youthfully medicinal nose. Plush, broad and deep, but with tangy acidity giving shape and lift to the dark berry and violet flavors. This spreads out to saturate every square millimeter of the palate. As dominated by its tannic structure as this is today, it’s a remarkably civilized wine. Give it a decade in the cellar and then enjoy it over the following 20 years.

Features a coating of warm cocoa, with notes of solid currant paste, steeped fig and blackberry fruit. The pastis- and graphite-filled finish pumps along, revealing a well-embedded structure that should soften in the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2030.
