2002 Château Léoville Poyferré St.-Julien

Winemaker's Notes

"One of the stars of the vintage, this 2002 reveals a saturated to the rim purple color as well as a big, sweet, provocative nose of earth, licorice, creme de cassis, and toasty new oak. It possesses medium to full body, great purity, tangy underlying acidity, and an impressively long, 40-second finish. This top-flight St.-Julien should hit its prime in 5-8 years, and last for over two decades. Bravo!"-Wine Advocate Barrel Sample, 92-94 Points

    Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Cool, calm and collected. Concentrated yet discreet. Fine berry fruit, with a long, elegant palage. Well structured with rewarding tannins. Drink 2010-17. (17.5 points)
