Château Léoville Poyferré

Château Léoville Poyferré

Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Lots of Brett upon opening that settled out with time and food, followed with aromas of oak/cedar with vanilla. On the palate, taste cherry, cedar, leather and tobacco. Medium plus acidity. Soft tannins. — 20 days ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Cabernet sauvignon 2005

Sorry to say I turned 60 a couple of weeks ago. My daughters came in to celebrate this past weekend and we wanted to drink some good wine. What a trio: ‘12 Cade Reserve, ‘13 Cardinale, and ‘05 Leoville Las Cases. Ironically, I am going to score all 3 of these as 97+. They were really a treat. The Las Cases was decanted for 5 hours and it was clear that we were about 7 years too early. It’s a terrific wine and at at age ~25 it will be absolutely stunning. Already has balance and harmony. Can’t wait until I am about 67 so that I can revisit the remaking 11 bottles! — a month ago

Very nice

Château Moulin Riche

Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Certainly not refined, but this 2005 Ch. Moulin Riche (at the time branded as the second wine of Léoville-Poyferré) is an earthy, gutsy Saint-Julien from a superb vintage that carries its sixteen years of age with aplomb, even from half bottle. Almost no bricking, the colour is a vibrant mid ruby.

Very funky on the nose (a little brett, I think), even with two hours of air, there’s a spicy core of cassis, blackberry, plum, cedar, even cinnamon, which is all contained within a rich palate and a framework full of tannin and energy. The finish is long, vibrant, and mouthwatering. I must say I really respect this wine. I would expect it to continue to age well.

Clos du Marquis Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Nice nose of fresh berries. Still a bit of acidity and nice strawberry flavor w a slight aftertaste of cigar wrapper. Flavor does not last long. — 16 days ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Grand Vin de Leoville du Marquis de las Cases Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1983

Classic old school style of Las Cases that is fully mature showing red & black fruits, currant, cedar, leather, dried herbs & tobacco. Not the power or length of the 82 & 86 but very enjoyable. — 24 days ago

Château Ducru-Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Delectable Wine
9.6

The 2010 Ducru-Beaucaillou has a seriously fine bouquet with plenty of black fruit, cedar and hints of camphor that blossom from the glass. So much vigour and intensity here, yet it remains beautifully delineated and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain, supple tannins. There is a fine bead of acidity, fresh and focused, one of the most pliant Saint-Julien crus in this flight with a supple finish that belies that structure underneath. It reminds me of Léoville Poyferré. Superb. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal. (Neal Martin, Vinous, April 2020)
