K&L Notes

92-94 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Léoville Poyferré was picked from 24 September with the Merlot, the Cabernet Sauvignon following six days later and finishing on 12 October. It has a deep purple colour. The bouquet is sensual and voluptuous with black plum, cassis and blueberry, very floral with violet and pressed iris aromas, typically quite outgoing in style. [A second bottle displays more dark chocolate aromas.] The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins and a fine bead of acidity. There is a plushness to this Poyferré that belies good backbone underneath and a saline, truffle tinged finish that lingers in the mouth. It just feels a little blunt at the moment but it should flesh out with time." (11/2019)

    This is fat, intense and powerful but with an amazing undercurrent of energy and freshness. Spiced mulberry and smoky dark plum emerge from the coiled middle and the finish is concentrated and beautifully textured. Huge but so easy to drink.

    This dark, powerful wine is full of impressive ripe, nearly confiture like black fruit. It is by far the richest of the 2018 St. Julien's that we tasted and a wine for the hedonistic Cabernet lover. It is composed of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 8% Petite Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc.

    On the nose, very concentrated notes of dark fruit and earthy graphite. On the palate, however, very elegant and round, with great acid and nice grippy tannins. This should be a fantastic wine to age in the cellar.

    In my opinion Saint-Julien is the sweet spot in 2018. Leoville Poyferre is composed of 64% CS 30% Merlot 3% CF and 3% PV. This is a candidate for the best tasting wine of the vintage at the top level. Big wine, loaded with freshness and layers of silky blood red fruit. The layers, along with the middle fruit texture and the rounded tannins are the key here, leading to a very long aftertaste. Outstanding! 3 Stars Ralph Sands
