The Leoville Poyferre 2003 is a true solicitor wine – a very hot Bordeaux indeed! In the bouquet somewhat overripe notes of prune and plum with the alcohol present (label says 13,5%!!). Also some creme de cassis, liquorice and blueberries is showing in the nose. On the palate big, hot and heavy fruit, again with slightly overripe notes and with the alcohol showing in the finish. It’s big with layers of fruit and offer very fine concenation with a little terroir showing. Sadly not a wine for my palate – and not a classic Bordeaux in my view. If you like Leoville Poyferre look for 2000 and 2005.

I have therefore adjusted my mission statement: “My mission is to help readers find more joy and hedonistic pleasure in Burgundy wines; to help them understand the terroirs and ...
