This is rocking> Apon opening this is just a poof of something lactic followed by a decidely ferny green herb note with hints of perfumey soap and light cedar notes to the rich, fresh red fruits. This is lighter and much more elegant than either the Troplong or Figeac with fresh red fruits in the mouth and wonderfully ripe tannins. Medium bodied with solid, vibrant acidity, this could easily be underwhelming in a crowd but it is exactly that subtle complexity that warrants and rewards attention. A great Bordeaux, really quintessential and at peak with a long future ahead.

Winemaker's Notes:

Absolutely spectacular, the1990 Leoville Poyferre is much more evolved than<br/>either of its two Leoville neighbors. Its opaque plum/garnet color is<br/>accompanied by a gorgeous bouquet of smoke, charcoal, creme de cassis, and<br/>flowers. Fleshy and opulent, it comes across like a St.-Julien with a Pomerol<br/>texture and allure. This beauty has reached full maturity where it should<br/>remain for another two decades. <br/>(Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Jun-2009)
