Drinking quite nicely for young Bordeaux from a not so heralded vintage. Poyferre did well with this 2012.

This may be the most balanced and deep wine I've had. Green peppers and tobacco on the nose and palette with that awesome medicinal thing going. Like toro, it dissolves on the tongue.

Happily surprised this is not a hot mess and has a LONG life ahead. This is proof of great vineyard management #leovillepoyferre #poyfferre #stjulien #bordeaux #2003scorchinghotweather

As good as this wine tastes today, I still won't open any of mine for another 10-15 years cuz it's only going to get so much better. Dry dark & blue fruits with dried flowers on the nose. The fruits on the palate; dry blackberries, black plum skin, black cherries, stewed strawberries hang in the background, steeped black tea, dry brown earth with crushed rocks, tannins are more pronounced than the others today, some figs & dates, stems, soft leather, drip coffee, high acid and finishes brighter and rounder than the others so far.
