It is a colossal success and a potential legend in the making. Its saturated, dense inky/blue/purple color offers up notes of crushed rocks, acacia flowers, blueberries, black raspberries, and creme de cassis. A synthesis of power and elegance, this multi-layered wine has spectacular concentration, sweet but high tannin, and low acidity A stunning effort that showcases this legendary terroir, it is a brilliant, brilliant success. The quintessential Leoville Poyferre? Robert Parker

This may be the most balanced and deep wine I've had. Green peppers and tobacco on the nose and palette with that awesome medicinal thing going. Like toro, it dissolves on the tongue.

Happily surprised this is not a hot mess and has a LONG life ahead. This is proof of great vineyard management #leovillepoyferre #poyfferre #stjulien #bordeaux #2003scorchinghotweather

Nice dark earthy overtones. Smooth and easy. Soft on nose and palate. Some complexity though a bit modern in style

Poyferre largely escaped the baking that everyone else seemed to get in 2003

Exotic, VA, could be pleasurable to some now, but lacking complexity and not a lot of follow through.

Stewed fruit note all over. Probably typical of the vintage which is an atypically hot year. Everything else is finely resolved. Low acid. Thick and full body. Not my cup of tea but enjoyable nonetheless.
