External Reviews for Chateau Leoville Poyferre Saint Julien Futures
Solid notes of steeped black currant ganache-coated fig and plum eau de vie pump along in this very dark red but with well-integrated structure. Long and winey through the finish with the grip extending everything nicely. Best from 2016 through 2026. -JM Wine Spectator.
(a blend of 62.5% cabernet sauvignon 29% merlot 6% petit verdot and 2.5% cabernet franc): Bright medium ruby. Classic Saint-Julien aromas of cassis licorice tar minerals and dark chocolate. Lush sweet and powerful with a superb glyceral texture to the dark berry and dark chocolate flavors. Huge wine but not at all heavy. The extremely long echoing finish features utterly noble tannins that saturate the front teeth. Offers a show-stopping combination of sweetness and structure. Bui
Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. The Leoville Poyferre 2009 has a very pure lifted almost Margaux-like bouquet with blackberry raspberry leaf and crushed stone - a certain coolness that is very appealing. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. It is quite compact in the mouth but it is very well focused and displays poise and tension towards the composed finish. Excellent - this is a Saint Julien that is beginning to shed its puppy fat and find its "groove". Tasted January
An immensely structured wine, packed with dark tannins promising aging potential. It is complex, powerful, layered with new wood and concentration, finishing with dark plum fruits and acidity.
Inky purple. Brooding, masculine nose offers black plum, chocolate liqueur, orange peel and espresso. Soft and supple on entry, then a bit youthfully aggressive in the middle, but with a distinctly chewy texture supporting the ultraripe black plum and chocolate flavors. Finishes with building, slightly dry tannins and hints of Oriental plum liqueur and peppery soy sauce. Always a sexy wine, this Leoville Poyferre has excellent balance and is more discreet than some other vintages of the last 20 years. It may still be a little short on finesse, but it's hard to argue with its almost decadent, voluptuous appeal. Very well done, and likely to be one of the ch a teau's most successful wines ever.
One of the stars of the vintage, it will be interesting to see if Poyferre ultimately eclipses Las Cases as the finest of the three Leovilles. The 2009 is even better than the 2000, 2003, and 2005. Its inky/purple color precedes a wine filled with ex... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Leoville-Poyferre 1500ml
