Château Léoville-Poyferré 2001
Out of stock
Château Léoville-Poyferré is regarded as the most supple, forward Léoville Second Growth, but does not lack depth, as in their superb 2001. Entering maturity, it deftly combines dark fruit and complexity.
"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. 2021 – 2045" 93/100 Neal Martin, Vinous (2021)
