Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
93

Léoville Poyferré’s dense ruby/purple 2005 is soft, round and juicy, with lots of blackcurrant fruit, plum and Asian spice. It is medium to full-bodied and, along with Léoville Las Cases and Saint-Pierre, probably one of the best St.-Juliens I tasted in this retrospective. It is surprisingly supple and accessible. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. Drink: 2015 - 2030.

The Château Léoville-Poyferré 2005 has a rich and opulent bouquet with lavish ripe black cherries and wild strawberry, just a touch of licorice rendering its even more extravagant. The palate is full-bodied with ripe, rounded tannin, touches of licorices and glycerin on the mid-palate with savory notes flourishing towards the finish. This is almost a brash, hubristic Saint Julien, one for those who prefer a more opulent style of Bordeaux while maintaining complexity. Chapeau Didier Cuvelier.

92-3

Dark, narrow rimmed red; sweet, cedary early bouquet; nicely concentrated, firmly tannic, fresh, medium full wine; a lively cassis fruit, complex and fine and long, within a tannic, long term frame. Very good quality no doubt, but this is a very long term wine which needs at least a decade more in bottle. 2025-45+
