Description

97  Jeb Dunnuck
“The 2015 Leoville Poyferre is cut from the same cloth as the 2016, yet is more sexy, rounded and opulent. Notes of cassis, licorice, crushed rocks, lead pencil shavings and graphite all emerge from this unctuous, ripe, pedal-to-the-metal beauty that’s absolutely loaded with fruit and texture. Reminding me of the 2003, yet only fresher, don’t miss this beauty. It should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for 3-4 decades.” (11/2017)

97  Antonio Galloni for Vinous
“The 2015 Léoville-Poyferré is spectacular. Inky, dense and explosive, the 2015 possesses off the chart richness, with soft contours, no hard edges and exceptional balance. All the elements are simply fused together. inky blue/purplish fruit, chocolate, new leather, blueberry jam, exotic spice and violet notes are all beautifully delineated throughout. Fresh, vibrant and totally sexy, Léoville-Poyferré is one of the wines of the vintage. Don’t miss it! Tasted two times.” (2/2018)

96  James Suckling
“A rich and intense red with blackberries, tar and spices. Black tea and blueberries. Full-bodied, very layered and multi-dimensional. Very long and flavorful. Such great texture. A dynamic and superb red. Drink in 2023.” (2/2018)

96  Roger Voss for Wine Enthusiast
“Following the style that this estate has now adopted, this is an ultra-rich, concentrated wine. However its acidity and bright black-currant fruits contrast well with this solid base. Drink this impressive wine from 2026.” *Cellar Selection* (2/2018)

95  James Molesworth for Wine Spectator
“Dark plum cake, blueberry reduction and açaí berry fruit tilts this to the exotic side of the ledger, with warm ganache, melted black licorice and tar notes providing the spine through the lush finish. Displays some serious latent grip, so there’s no rush despite the showy fruit. Best from 2022 through 2040.” (3/2018)

94  Jane Anson for Decanter
“This is starting not to soften but to gently open up, even after only a couple of years. The raspberry and black cherry aromatics show a touch more caramel than in the 2016 vintage – it has a grilled charred oak character that gives impact whilst remaining extremely well integrated. Seductive, silky, hedonistic and still very much of a Médoc character, with a hint of menthol on the finish to lift things up. A lovely wine that will offer huge pleasure for the next 20 years plus. 3% Cabernet Franc makes up the rest of the blend.” (6/2018)

94  Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“The 2015 Léoville-Poyferré is deep garnet-purple colored with a nose of grilled meats, baked plums, crème de cassis and baker’s chocolate with nuances of dusty soil and iron ore plus a hint of bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, very firm and muscular in the mouth, it is built like a brick house with a mineral-tinged finish.” (2/2018)
