Chateau Leoville Poyferre Rouge 1996
"Steven Tanzer: 91 Deep ruby-red. Expressive aromas of plum, currant, game, woodsmoke and tobacco. Denser and sweeter than the '97 or '98; structured but pliant. Finishes quite long, with dusty, very fine tannins nicely buffered by fruit. (5/99) Robert Parker 93 This fabulous 1996 was tasted three times from bottle, and it is unquestionably the finest wine produced by this estate since their blockbuster 1990. Medium to full-bodied, with a saturated black/purple color, the nose offers notes of cedar, jammy black fruits, smoke, truffles, and subtle new oak. In the mouth, there is impressive fruit extraction, a tannic, full-bodied structure, and a classic display of power and finesse. The longer it sat in the glass, the more impressive the wine became. Backward, and massive in terms of its extract and richness, this should prove to be a sensational Leoville-Poyferre for drinking over the next three decades. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2028. Wine Spectator: 88, Delivers on the nose, with intense aromas of spices, blackberry and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Slightly hollow midpalate. Best after 2002. (JS) Decanter 4 Stars: November 1999 - Black fruit and subtle oak. Tannic and dense, mineral note. 5-10 years+. Clive Coates 2005-2025 18: Fullish colour. Rich, fat, almost opulent nose. Medium-full body. Very fine tannins. This has grip and depth and a very seductive character. Long and satisfying at the end. Very fine.

A phantastic wine in its good age of drinking. You could save this or just drink it I guess. Like the Cos d'estornel a liquid silver feeling down the throat.
