Chateau Leoville Poyferre 2000 Saint-Julien 8 x 75cl / 13%
This lot contains eight bottles of 2000 Château Léoville Poyferré from Bordeaux's Saint-Julien appellation, a Deuxieme Cru in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification.
The 80 hectares of vineyards are planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc.
'The plushest, most ostentatious and dramatic of all the Leovilles in 2000, this wine is already sumptuous, displaying some nuances in its huge nose of vanilla bean, black chocolate, jammy black cherries, cassis, and graphite in a flamboyant style. Opulent, savory, rich, and full-bodied, it is a head-turning, prodigious wine and a complete contrast to the extracted behemoth of Leoville Barton and the backward, classic Leoville Las Cases. The Poyferre's low acidity, sweet tannin and an already gorgeous mouthfeel make it a wine to drink now as well as over the next 25 or more years. 97/100' Robert Parker, tasted 2010
This lot comes from the temperature-controlled cellar of media businessman and wine enthusiast Lord Evgeny Lebedev, where it has been kept since purchase direct from UK importers.
