The Leoville Poyferre 2000 is a lovely and very accessible Bordeaux. In the bouquet fine ripe fruit with notes of black cherries, cassis and hints of cedar and pencil lead. On the palate opulent and quite rich with soft tannins, good balance and length. It’s quite full-bodied but lacking a little of the midpalate focus and concentration found in the 2005 – it’s a bit more openly knit. A beautiful wine … a pleasure in the best sense of the word. Very drinkable now but should keep for another decade or two. Would however give it a few years more in the cellar to develop even more complexity.

- WineHog rating system – more than points Tasting and rating wine is not exact science … and therefore I prefer to use a scale that reflects that wine is a living organism and that a wine can taste like 94 points one day … and 93 the next day … depending on the moon, the glass, temperature and or my mood!
