Chateau Leoville Poyferre 1995 St. Julien owc Bottle (12)
A fantastic collection from the Trust of a Chicago based wine lover who had an eye for all things French. If impeccably stored Bordeaux and Burgundy in their original cases is your persuasion, then you’re in for a treat. All of the wines stored professionally at an offsite location in Chicago.
"While not as backward as the 1996, the opaque purple-colored 1995 is a tannic, unevolved, dense, concentrated wine that will require 8-10 years of cellaring. The 1995 exhibits pain grille, blackcurrant, mineral, and subtle tobacco in its complex yet youthful aromatics. Powerful, dense, concentrated cassis and blueberry flavors might be marginally softer than in the 1996, but there is still plenty of grip and structure to this big wine." (90 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #115, Feb. 1998)
