1990 Chateau Leoville Poyferre Deuxieme Cru Classe 75cl / 13%
A bottle of 1990 Château Léoville Poyferré from Bordeaux's Saint-Julien appellation, a Deuxième Cru - or 'Second Growth - 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.
'Absolutely spectacular, the 1990 Leoville Poyferre is much more evolved than either of its two Leoville neighbors. Its opaque plum/garnet color is accompanied by a gorgeous bouquet of smoke, charcoal, creme de cassis, and flowers. Fleshy and opulent, it comes across like a St.-Julien with a Pomerol texture and allure. This beauty has reached full maturity where it should remain for another two decades. 97/100' Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 2009
