Editorial Reviews for Chateau Leoville Poyferre St Julien
Nutty oak is a bit heavy on the nose, though there is plenty of jammy fruit to support it it remains vanilla tinged. A bit austere on entry, focused, rather powerful and frankly tannic with dry tannins spreading across the palate. You can sense the stuffing here and there's a hint of bitterness on the palate that offers a nice counterpoint to the seethes. This turns somewhat perfumed fruit in the mouth, though it remains a bit tough and short. Surprisingly so. This seems to be well equipped to improve in the bottle. 89pts
Smoky oak, clay soil tones, smoked chili, sweet touch of caramel, blackberry coulis – velvet texture in the mouth, seductive soft tannins, mid-palate turns a bit loose and blowsy but quite texturally expansive, tightens up on the finish, a touch short but quite enjoyable already (89-90)
This is rocking> Apon opening this is just a poof of something lactic followed by a decidely ferny green herb note with hints of perfumey soap and light cedar notes to the rich, fresh red fruits. This is lighter and much more elegant than either the Troplong or Figeac with fresh red fruits in the mouth and wonderfully ripe tannins. Medium bodied with solid, vibrant acidity, this could easily be underwhelming in a crowd but it is exactly that subtle complexity that warrants and rewards attention. A great Bordeaux, really quintessential and at peak with a long future ahead.
Four and a half glasses
Superb! Almost liquor.
Very woody on the nose. Wood and soft raspberry fruit on the palate. Big Tannins still. Showing too much wood overall right now.
Three and a half glasses
I recommend decanting this wine for 6 + hours to experience a stunning wine. This wine at first, was light and almost seemed diluted. A nose of roses, violets, with minerals and cedar. After 4 hours and a few sips, the wine started to take shape, and gain a nice length. We consumed this wine after 6 hours, and it had changed from light and subtle, to a big, full bodied, meaty, smoked dark fruits, multi dimensional heavy hitter of a wine. Also, a long, long, finish. Wonderful!
Lovely deep red in the glass. My bottle came out of the fridge in a tiny restaurant in the Marias so the nose was almost impossible to decipher. Some definite vanilla, cherry and a hint of smoke on the nose. Super mouth feel, really firm and fruity, great tannins, rounded and opulent I can't believe the price on this 2004 Bordeaux and can't stress how much you should be buying this wine esp considering the 2005 prices. 92 Points

This very ripe full-bodied wine is powered by sweet blackberries and solid tannins. It is a full concentrated and complex wine that has a great future. Wine Enthusiast.
A very ripe fleshy gutsy style with mouthfilling tar espresso braised fig and dark plum notes still waiting to meld fully. The broad muscular finish has a nice briary edge. Impressive.-J.M. Wine Spectator.
58% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, 6% petit verdot, and 6% cabernet franc. Aromas of dark plum and black cherry mix with notes of cola, dark chocolate, and damp earth. Filled with big, firm, grippy tannins, the vintage's high acidity is notable but ... Alex Shaw. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Leoville-Poyferre 6000ml

Good deep ruby-red. Blueberry crushed cassis and graphite minerality on the youthfully medicinal nose. Plush broad and deep but with tangy acidity giving shape and lift to the dark berry and violet flavors. This spreads out to saturate every square millimeter of the palate. As dominated by its tannic structure as this is today it s a remarkably civilized wine. Give it a decade in the cellar and then enjoy it over the following 20 years. 94+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Leoville Poyferre From an assemblage of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon 30% Merlot 6% Petit Verdot along with 3% Cabernet Franc this wine reached 14% alcohol. Even at this degree of alcohol there is no feeling of heat. Smoke earth jammy dark berries and cassis scents produce the aromatics. This fresh chocolate covered cassis filled wine is big and almost brawny in style. Its beefy tannins and low pH combine freshness and power which are made better by the long cassis filled powerful finish. Acco
