Tasting Notes Leoville Poyferre 2005

95

Tasted single blind at Southwold. Again, the nose has shut down like the previous wine. Blackberry, cedar, a touch of animal fur – this should be so incredibly complex in a few years time. The palate is full-bodied with firm tannins, very well balanced and supple. Nice elegant, smooth vivacious blackberry and cedar finish. Its sensuality belies the turbo-charged engine at the heart of this wine. Great length. Superb. Drink 2018-2040. Tasted January 2009.

Although I still prefer the 2003, the 2005 Leoville Poyferre is a gorgeously opulent, approachable wine that is far less massive and austere than its two siblings. The most seductive, approachable, and charming of the three Leovilles, it exhibits a dense purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of mocha, black chocolate, creme de cassis, licorice, and toasty oak. Full-bodied with gorgeous upfront fruit in addition to impressive levels of melted, well-integrated tannin, it should be at its finest between 2015-2035.

This is very Cabernet with cassis and currants. Full and tight, with dense fruit and big tannin structure. This has a serious finish, but needs time to develop even more. Try this after 2015.
