2008 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

SKU #1070541 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark One of the finest over-achieving efforts in this vintage as well as a 'best buy' for a top-flight St.-Julien, this 2008 is an irresistible success. It reveals an opaque ruby/purple color, lots of unctuosity and a boatload of sweet cassis and black cherry fruit intertwined with notions of licorice, smoke and oak. Full-bodied, remarkably concentrated and stunningly pure and textured, this sensational wine is already drinking well, and will be even better with 2-3 years of cellaring. It should last for 20-25 years. Bravo! (RP) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2008 Léoville-Poyferré has a well-defined, quite precise and energetic bouquet with blackberry, raspberry and pencil lead aromas. This is very focused and engaging. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, graphite and pencil box aromas, harmonious in the mouth with a long and refined finish. What a fabulous Saint Julien from Didier Cuvelier, one that satiates the senses (and then some). (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

Outer quote mark Luscious, inky, nice blend of ripe fruit and St-Julien structure. At a good point now. Polished. 17/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2018)
