    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripe, fruity and powerful, this wine has intense Cabernet black-currant flavors, with plenty of richness and concentration. It shows the acidity and the bright fruit of the year.

    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.

    Wine Spectator

    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.

    The Wine Advocate

    Opaque, very deep purple-ruby. Deep, brooding nose hints at blackcurrant, graphite and cedar. Dense, rich and suave, with captivating sweetness to the flavors of blackcurrant, mint and flint. The finish is pure, creamy and long, with smooth spicy tannins I love this wine's pure black fruit nose, and its harmonious acidity really extends and lifts its flavors. This chateau has been on a roll of late.

    International Wine Cellar

    This shows a currant and berries with dark chocolate character. Full and chewy with a bright acidity. Structured too. A little austere. Wait and see. Only about 40% of the normal production. 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot.
