Château Léoville Poyferré Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2001
The wines of Chteau Loville Poyferr are first distinguished by their considerable aromatic complexity ranging from red fruits, such as cherry, to mushroom for older vintages.Thanks to its terroir, Loville Poyferr displays a magnificent balance between alcohol, acidity and tannins. The wine develops a sumptuous velvet quality in addition to plenty of elegance and finesse, altogether with a very great potential for aging.

Plummy, raisiny nose, surprisingly youthful for it's age, fruitcake flavours. Now mature, ideal for simple roasts. Available to purchase in the UK via M&S £11.99
Amazing, classic Bordeaux. I probably drank this one too early, but it was worth it. Superb.
Very enjoyable. Lots of unintegrated fruit. Dark and meaty but it will improve. Good length but the mouth is lacking something. Not really a wine to my taste although I can accept that it is a good wine.
External Reviews for Château Léoville Poyferré Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien
Like many of the great wines of the world, this is a rare wine, and only available in small quantities.
Smoky and rich with lots of spice and berries. Medium- to full-bodied, with very good tannins with soft and silky texture and a medium finish. Not as impressive in bottle as barrel, but outstanding... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Leoville-Poyferre 750ml
Jean-Hubert Delon thinks the 2001 Leoville Las Cases could turn out to be as good as his 2000. Im not sure I agree, but it may come close. A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19.5% Merlot, and the rest ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Leoville-Las Cases 750ml
This is very floral and perfumed with lots of violets, roses and berries. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a racy finish. Superfresh and long. Focused and clean. Best after 2010. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Leoville-Las Cases 750ml
Gorgeous wine. At this stage in its development it is showing a flashy and flamboyant bouquet of black currant, ripe blackberries, espresso, baking spices like cinnamon and coriander and touches of leather. This wine enters the palate with gusto, big black cherries and cassis with a layered texture that showcases the fruit and is framed well by secondary and tertiary flavors of mocha and roasted coffee. Firm tannins and a prominent, but not overwhelming acidity ensure that this bad boy will lay down and continue to improve for 5-6 years and drink well another half decade after that. Long, savory finish that begs for another taste. This wine is not shy and it transcends the vintage with fierce character and personality. This is one to stockpile for short-medium term drinking.
