Chateau Léoville Poyferré 2005

Léoville Poyferré’s dense, deep ruby 2005 is soft, round and juicy, with lots of blackcurrant fruit, plum and Asian spice. It is medium to full-body, surprisingly supple and accessible. Although I still prefer 2003, 2005 is a gorgeously opulent, approachable wine that is far less massive and austere than its two siblings. The most seductive, friendly, and charming of the three Leovilles, it exhibits a dense purple colour as well as a sweet bouquet of mocha, black chocolate, creme de cassis, liquorice, and toasty oak. Full-bodied with gorgeous upfront fruit in addition to impressive levels of melted, well-integrated tannin.
