Day 3: Big, black chocolate nose, with baked blackberry, black olives, and charred beef ribs charging from the glass. The floodgates have finally opened, and it was worth the wait! There is fresh cocoa bean pods and a jungle of flora; rosemary and iris extracts and an oatmeal raisin aspect to the perfuming.
Just the right texture for the pungent hothouse welcome: grippy and coarse, with a bitter chocolate and raspberry interplay, and a single unforgettable graphite and smoky slate backbone; unwavering in the churn of black currant, pepper, eucalyptus, leather and tobacco. Léoville Poyferré's high octane new world Malbec that puts a LOT of stick about! It also has an elegance, as all good dominatrixes should! You'll get a kick out of this! #LéovillePoyferré #bordeauxandburgers #argentinawine #Argentina #malbec #malbecmalbec #newworldmeetsoldworld #CuvelierLosAndes #andes #grandmalbec #ucovalley #uco #mendoza — 2 years ago
Monthly WTF guys blind tasting group. This month was our annual, and famed, Left Bank vs Right Bank theme. All wines served blind as usual. Started off with a Rosé and a champagne. Great night.
The most soft and plush wine of the night. I’d enjoy these soon as there isn’t a lot of acidity, or tannin, at this 5yr mark. Very ripe. Jammy/fruit forward...fresh squeezed blueberries and blackberries on the nose. Sweetened plum, bacon fat, boysenberry jam notes on the palate. I called this ‘14, Left Bank, St Julien.

Made by the same guys who operate Léoville Poyferré, they definitely know how to make a great blend. Their 2010 Grand Vin is perhaps my favourite Argentinean wine. It slightly lacks the depth and lushness of its bigger brother but it offers excellent value for the price. Notes of dark chocolate, coffee, cedar, oak, plum with hints of vanilla. Smooth acidity and tannins on the palate. Great Bordeaux style wine from Mendoza. — 2 years ago
