Château Léoville Poyferré 2011, Saint-Julien 2° Grand Cru Classé - DM 3L - Parker 94
Deep, dense color, very saturated. Fine and complex nose with a very pure expression of fruit, notes of cedar. The palate is full, powerful attack. Fleshy, dense mid-palate, carried by the rich tannins. Exquisite finish supported by a sublime tannic structure, fine, elegant and balanced. This wine embodies the purity of fruit in harmony with a sumptuous tannic structure.
Robert Parker - Wine Advocate (May 2012) 91-93
Another super effort from this estate, Leoville Poyferre’s 2011 possesses an opaque purple color in addition to a ripe, fragrant nose of black currant fruit, cedar, white chocolate and a touch of oak. Rich, layered and medium to full-bodied with unmistakable elegance and purity, vibrant acids and a fresh, lively personality, it will need 3-4 years of cellaring and should keep for two decades.

Wonderful red colour with purple undertone. Very scented nose with fragrance of coffee, mocha, violet, blackberry, blackcurrant and a touch of cinnamon. The palate reveals tastes of dark chocolate, candied fruits and kirsch with notes of oak. A classy wine with a good aging potential.
Once again, the château transcends the vintage and delivers a 2012 of remarkable purity and energy. Its definition and brilliance are absolutely fantastic, with a brightness of fruit and finesse of tannin which take it to the summit. Another landmark
(...) the 2017 Grand-Puy-Lacoste was aged in French oak barriques, 75% new. Medium to deep garnet-purple coloured, it opens with notes of fresh black raspberries, kirsch and crushed black and red currants with hints of spice box, fragrant soil and potpourri. Medium-bodied, the palate is frisky and fresh with a moderate level of approachable, soft tannins and compelling restraint on the finish. robertparker.com
Its dense ruby colour with purple nuances is followed by a nose that reluctantly offers up scents of damp earth, wood smoke, black cherries, cassis, and an exotic Asian spice character. The wine is formidably endowed and broodingly tannic, with noticeable acidity and a structured, nearly impenetrable mouthfeel.
The 1995 vintage exhibits wonderful dark cherry and leather notes. Medium bodied with well integrated tannins and a nice earthy spice on the finish. A true expression of a classic Lynch-Bages.
Outstanding wine thanks to its fatness, its texture and its powerfull tannins. This vintage has a remarkable style and purity.
