Tasting Notes

Score: 87Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

1994 Léoville Poyferré : “Dark ruby/purple-coloured, offers up scents of toasty vanilla and sweet blackcurrant fruit. This medium-bodied claret possesses good fat, moderate tannin… Although still youthful, the wine possesses enough fruit to balance out the tannin. Drink 2000-2015.

Score: 87+Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (3), November 1998

A garnet core with deep brick rim, slightly brighter than the 1993. The nose is very conservative upon the first couple of sniffs, but be patient because it evolves an attractive mulberry scented aromas with touches of bilberry and Satsuma. The palate is medium-bodied, harmonious, firm tannins, rather conservative but with very good weight and far more freshness and vigour that I was expecting. Quite meaty and very savoury towards the rustic finish, it is almost as if it wants to be Figeac! Very fine considering the vintage and far superior to the lamentable 1993. Drink now-2014 Tasted March 2008.
