Château Léoville Poyferré Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

"Steven Tanzer 90: Ruby-red. Complex aromas of cherry, currant, cedar, tobacco, mocha, minerals, menthol and licorice. Bright and penetrating, with juicy acids giving definition to the wine's flavors. Flavors run more to black fruits than the nose would suggest. A nicely aromatic wine with ripe tannins and solid structure. (5/05) Robert Parker 90: This wine has completely shut down since it’s been bottled but exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color, high levels of tannin, and sweet, noble black currant fruit intermixed with some licorice, espresso roast, and pain grille. In the vernacular, it is closed for business, with medium to full body, high levels of tannin, and good acidity in a more structured, classic style than the 2003. This is a big, traditionally made wine to forget for a good 5-8 years. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2020. (4/05) 89 Wine Spectator: Dark color with beautiful blackberry, currant and smoky earth character. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a delicate finish. Excellent attack, but falls a little short. Best after 2010. (web only, 2006) Decanter 4 Stars: Cool, calm and collected. Concentrated yet discreet. Fine berry fruit, with a long, elegant palage. Well structured with rewarding tannins. Drink 2010-17. (17.5 points) (3/05) """

In the reign of Louis XIII, in 1638, a certain Jean de Moytié, Counsellor of the Bordeaux parliament and a noble bourgeois of the town, owned a beautifully sloped gravelly vineyard near the River. This place, as was the tradition, was named after its owner and thus became the “Mont-Moytié.” Historically, the production of Mont-Moytié was among the first Médoc wines, along with the “Château de Margaux”, the “Tour de Saint-Lambert” or the “Château de La Fitte” in Pauillac and the “Château de Calon”, in Saint-Estèphe, which were all established before the period of civil war known as La Fronde (1648-1653.) These were the first estates to appear in the Médoc parishes, which were later to become commune appellations. Read less
