Leoville Poyferre 1982
Tasting Notes and Scores
The 1982 Leoville-Poyferre possesses great concentration, full body as well as considerable structure. A dense purple/plum color reveals some lightening at the rim. Terrific concentration hits the palate with mouth-searing levels of tannin. Full-bodied, thick, structured, muscular, and loaded with potential, this 1982 requires another 5-6 years of cellaring. It should age effortlessly for another 25-30 years. Patience is required. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2030.
