Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2013

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

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)
