Unfortunately, for readers, I only remember this being awesome! I blew through it with my filet.

A cold took away last weekends wine enjoyment. Back on the horse and wanted to try something different for me. This was really enjoyable, I know it’s a great vintage so was interested to see if all the high praise was justified. Lots perfumed floral notes on the nose with some tobacco and sweet spice and oak. The palate is surprisingly fruit forward with definite tannins that leave a dry but long finish. Probably needs time to smooth out and integrate more but drinks very well now and is further enhanced with food ( tonight’s meatloaf). Recommended and I’d love to fast forward a few years to see where it goes.

This is a review of the kosher version. The wine tastes like Bordeaux, which for a kosher wine is unusual. Nothing special, but a classic Bordeaux with deep grape flavor and pepper in the finish.

Dry, terroir, tart fruit, dark chocolate, leather for sure, seems balanced but a little unfamiliar to R. Opened up with time. Nice bouquet and finish BSR, 2013 vintage

15 Vertical Chateau Leoville Poyferre dinner organized by the one and only Panos Kakaviatos and hosted at Le Cafe Descartes at the Ambassade de France in DC. Co-owner, Sara Cuveller, who had only arrived 2 hours earlier from France, was a most gracious educator of her wines as she took us through LP’s philosophy and approach and background on each wines growing season. Champagne to get us started then: 1990, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015.
