    Winemaker's Notes:

    A wonderful vineyard site and high proportion of old vines give this Chateau much potential. Increasingly richer and more complex, Leoville Poyferre is one of the rising stars in Saint Julien.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Black licorice and currants on the nose. Very fragrant. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Still needs time to come together.

    Wine Spectator

    While not as backward as the 1996, the opaque purple-colored 1995 is a tannic, unevolved, dense, concentrated wine that will require 8-10 years of cellaring. The 1995 exhibits pain grille, blackcurrant, mineral, and subtle tobacco in its complex yet youthful aromatics. Powerful, dense, concentrated cassis and blueberry flavors might be marginally softer than in the 1996, but there is still plenty of grip and structure to this big wine. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2030.
