Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 94

A wine that is emerging as a major sleeper of the vintage, the 2001 Leoville Poyferre bursts from the glass with aromas of cassis, ripe blackberries, loamy soil, cigar wrapper and violets. Medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated, with a deep core of fruit, lively acids and powdery structuring tannins, it’s an intensely flavored, rather dramatic rendition of the year that has hit its plateau of maturity. [William Kelley, 30/12/2021]

Anticipated maturity: 2021-2041

Vinous – 93

The 2001 Léoville Poyferré, which I had not tasted for a decade, is very harmonious on the nose and features slightly darker fruit than the 2000, offering blackberry, cedar, fresh tobacco and smoke aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, lithe tannins, fresher than the 2000 and more backward. It has a disarming velvety texture and turns spicy toward the finish. Hints of clove and bay leaf linger on the aftertaste. Excellent. [Neal Martin, 22/09/2021]

Anticipated maturity: 2021-2045 – 16.5

Mid garnet. Undergrowth on the nose. Savoury, a touch meaty, cigar box spice. Almost minty. Dry, subtle on the palate. A touch austere but in balance. Long, subtle finish. (JH) [13/09/2012]

Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020
