Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2013


95 Points VertdeVIn

A gourmand and elegant wine showed great finesse. The depth and complex wine as the nose and mouth. The nose shows ripe black fruits (cassis, blackberry, black cherry) well defined and associated with pure notes of violet and woody notes. The palate is fresh, long and made specific as well as some well defined juicy notes of fruits and a few spicy notes. The tannins are fine, a bit firm but should soften with time(edited),

Barrel Sample. Firm and concentrated, this wine has rich berry fruits and a fine tannic structure. It shows generous acidity finishing with fine, ripe fruits. (4/2014)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

This wine’s nearly opaque dense ruby/purple color is hardly that of an inferior vintage. The 2013 Leoville Poyferre exhibits a beautiful bouquet of blackberries and creme de cassis. This pure, luscious, long, luxurious (especially for the vintage) 2013 possesses adequate acidity, beautiful purity, and medium- to full-bodied density. One of the superstars of the vintage, it should drink well for 10-15 years. (8/2014)

92 points Wine Spectator

Shows good energy, with a vibrant, brambly spine that drives the plum cake, steeped currant and licorice flavors along. A solid bolt of singed apple wood pins down the finish. Best from 2017 through 2023. (JM) (3/2016)
