Tasting Notes

Vinous 94

The 2008 Leoville-Poyferre 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). (Tasted at BI Wine & Spirit s annual 10-Year On tasting.) [Neal Martin, 02/01/2018]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040

Robert Parker 93

Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. Didier Cuvelier’s wine seems to be on an upward curve in bottles. It has a very attractive bouquet with cedar and tobacco aromas. A lovely a oeclassica Saint Julien nose. The palate is ripe and well-defined with firm tannins, extremely well balanced towards the elegant finish. This is beautifully made and quite feminine, surpassing my expectations. Tasted January 2012. [Neal Martin, 01/01/2012]
