    Winemaker's Notes:

    Elegant, refined, complex and well-balanced wine. Intense color and velvety texture. They are excellent keeping wines.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Along with Leoville Las Cases and a few others, this is among the stars of the appellation. Made in a more floral, supple, Margaux-like style, the deep ruby/purple-hued 2004 Leoville Poyferre exhibits sweet, broad flavors, and plenty of tannin lurking beneath the surface. However, the abundant cherry, black currant, licorice, and smoke notes obscure the tannic clout. This rich, powerful, broad beauty should be drinkable in 2-3 years, and last for two decades.

    The Wine Advocate

    Dense, almost dusty tannins, but big fruit that gives potential balance to a fresh wine. Also has blackberry flavors.

    Wine Enthusiast

    Very clean, with blackberry, currant and light vanilla aromas. Full and juicy, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Impressive despite a slightly hollow midpalate. Wait and see as this grows in the bottle. May be a bit overextracted this year. Best after 2011.
