Château Léoville Poyferré Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

$135

...the 2005 Leoville Poyferre is a gorgeously opulent, approachable wine that is far less massive and austere than its two siblings. The most seductive, approachable, and charming of the three Leovilles, it exhibits a dense purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of mocha, black chocolate, creme de cassis, licorice, and toasty oak. Full-bodied with gorgeous upfront fruit in addition to impressive levels of melted, well-integrated tannin... Robert Parker

Says a lot about the night when this is mid-bottom of pack. Young, hauntingly fresh. Cassis and toasted brioche. Feminine. Should improve.

Ch. Leoville-Poyferre Dinner; 16 May 2017 at Chez Nous Bistro, Lee, MA Perfect example of a young, ready-to-enjoy-now, Second Growth Bordeaux, very supple and approachable.

Classic wine, classic vintage. Ripe black fruit- blackberry and prune integrated with structure and a touch of spice. Polished, powerful and balanced.

Very soft and silky red fruit profile, w some tobacco notes. Not as powerful as I'd have expected, but quite long...

Double mag decanted 4 hours and provided by @Dan Blackwell for his annual lamb fest. A bright spot on a May gray day above bird rock/North Pacific Beach. Very full and nice St. Julien. Cedar pulp, cassis, pencil lead and dark fruit. Ready now but will benefit from 5-10 yrs cellaring.

This is in a good, youngish place. Lots of fruit, acidity and tannin. Needs a few hours in a decanter now.
