2003 Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2nd Growth St. Julien, (1 x Magnum)

France Bordeaux St Julien

The spectacular 2003 Leoville Poyferre exhibits a dense purple color with a touch of lightening at the edge as well as notes of creosote, barbecue smoke, jammy black currants, licorice and spice box. This intense, voluptuously textured, full-bodied St.-Julien possesses low acidity and ripe tannin. Still fresh and exuberant, it is just entering its plateau of full maturity where it should remain for 10-15+ years.

Vinous

(a blend of 70% cabernet sauvignon, 25% merlot and 5% petit verdot) Bright medium ruby. Brooding, superripe aromas of black cherry, minerals and chocolate, with a whiff of game. Dense and very ripe, with an explosion of chocolatey fruit in the mid-palate. Despite its sheer size, this is elegant and shapely claret in the making, and not at all deficient in acidity. Ultimately more suave than the 2002, thanks to its lusher texture. Finishes with big but ripe, mouthdusting tannins and superb breadth and persistence.

Vinous

Bright ruby-red. Exotic cedary oak, graphite, redcurrant and licorice liqueur on the nose. Dense, lush and sexy, with exotic coconutty oak tones and harmonious acidity. As sweet as this is, it manages to maintain its balance. Finishes seamless and very long, with big but thoroughly ripe tannins and very good verve.
