Tasting Notes

Robert Parker, April 1996, Score: 88-90

The 1995 reveals an impressively saturated black/purple color, followed by a sweet, chocolatey, cassis-scented nose with hints of hickory smoke, toast, and charcoal. The wine is low in acidity, with excellent, possibly outstanding concentration, a layered feel in the mouth which adds to the appealing texture, and a long, thick, sumptuous, tannic finish. This should be a Leoville-Poyferre to rival the 1990, perhaps even the 1982. Stay tuned. It will unquestionably last for 20 years.No other than Libourne's Michel Rolland has been brought in as the consulting oenologist for Leoville-Poyferre. As a result, malolactic fermentation is now being done in oak casks, and the wine has taken on greater richness and intensity.All of the wines in this segment were tasted between March 19 and March 28 in Bordeaux. Most of the important wines from both the 1994 and 1995 vintages were tasted three separate times during my ten-day stay in Bordeaux. Drink: 1996-2016.

Producer

Château Léoville Poyferré

Similar to Pichon Longueville, the three Léovilles (Las Cases, Barton and Poyferré) were originallypart of the same estate - in fact, the largest in Bordeaux at the time of the revolution. In the early 1800s, the estate was divided into three distinct properties. Though it bears the same forename of its famous siblings, Poyferré is least known. Fortunately, this is changing. Through modernisation, exceptional vineyard management and meticulous winemaking, it is emerging as a star in its own right. Leoville Poyferre also produces the excellent Ch Moulin Riche.

Region

St Julien, Red Bordeaux

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
