Château Léoville Poyferré Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2000
Tasting Notes :Wow, this wine has really come on strong. A brilliant effort, it boasts an opaque purple color in addition to a gorgeously sweet nose (make that explosive nose) of blackberries and creme de cassis intermixed with minerals, smoke, and earth. The 2000 is opulent, full-bodied, and much more accessible than either of its two Leoville siblings, Leoville Las Cases or Leoville Barton, with low acidity, sweet tannin, and a layered, sumptuous finish. It continues to improve dramatically and looks to be a great success, rivaling the brilliant 1996 and 1990.

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
This has always been my favorite Bordeaux Grand Cru wine. After 8-10 years in cellar it almost becomes more femenin than Margeaux.
External Reviews for Château Léoville Poyferré Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien
Superb. Vivid, with lovely aromas of berries, minerals, toasted oak and leather. Full-bodied, with extremely well-integrated tannins and a long finish. A wine to remember. Best ever from this estate. Best after 2010. 20,000 cases made. (JS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Leoville-Poyferre 750ml
The plushest, most ostentatious and dramatic of all the Leovilles in 2000, this wine is already sumptuous, displaying some nuances in its huge nose of vanilla bean, black chocolate, jammy black cherries, cassis, and graphite in a flamboyant style. Opulent, savory, rich, and full-bodied, it is a head-turning, prodigious wine and a complete contrast to the extracted behemoth of Leoville Barton and the backward, classic Leoville Las Cases. The Poyferre s low acidity, sweet tannin and an already gorgeous mouthfeel make it a wine to drink now as well as over the next 25 or more years.
($73-$89) Good full medium ruby. Subdued, slightly roasted nose combines cassis, cherry and chocolate mint. Chocolatey-sweet but less deep and expressive than the 02 and 01. Offers good currant and cherry flavors but seems a bit dry-edged and medic... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Leoville-Poyferre 750ml
Ruby-red. Floral, highly perfumed nose of cassis, violet and mint. Intensely flavored and penetrating, but elegant more than particularly fleshy. Still, this tightly wound, serious wine boasts very good volume and plenty of incipient complexity. Not ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.
