Lot #136. Léoville-Poyferré 2005

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 95 WSM.
"This wine's heady rush of flavor gave one taster goosebumps. She called it sexy. "Formidable." Other technical descriptions included "the shazam," "has zazz," and "unprintable. That's some serious shit." At the en primeur tastings, this ap­peared to be chunky and superripe. Now it's massive, with dark extract and exotic spice, a sophisticated wine that ends on sweetness, bitter chocolate and dark berry fruit. With all the flash, it will give a lot of pleasure as a young wine, but it has the plump Poyferré terroir drive to sustain that pleasure for years to come." Wine & Spirits Magazine, Oct 2008
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $225
