One of the stars of the vintage, it will be interesting to see if Poyferre ultimately eclipses Las Cases as the finest of the three Leovilles. The 2009 is even better than the 2000, 2003, and 2005. Its inky/purple color precedes a wine filled with extraordinary opulence, voluptuous texture, and sweet tannin. It offers both intellectual and hedonistic pleasure with layer upon layer of ripe fruit...the blend is more than two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot...This is a wine to purchase by the case-load. It should drink well for 30-45 years. Robert Parker

Tasting 2009 clarets with tasting group last night. No one guessed claret for any of them. Very little fruit in any, rustic, on the boozy side. This was my favorite. V. dark, smoke, forest floor, garrigue. Opened with air.

Too young. Can't wait to give it a go after more time in bottle

100 point wine dinner at Blanches. Decanted 3 1/2 hours and still not enough time. Lovely nonetheless, but not at its best. Hold for several years. 2009 vintage on 10/1/16
