"A perfumed bouquet of flowers, jammy cassis, sweet oak, and truffles jumps from the glass of this ripe, classic, mid-weight claret. The wine is elegant rather than powerful. It possesses intense fruit, admirable ripeness as well as balance, and a long finish. Enjoy this beautiful, sexy Poyferre over the next 12-14 years."

"Dark ruby/purple-colored with an overripe nose of black fruits intermixed with minerals, smoke, and toasty new oak, this deep, voluptuously-textured wine possesses low acidity, a fat, fleshy mid-palate, and a surprisingly long finish. It could easily develop into an outstanding St.-Julien with early accessibility. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2016."

"A top-flight effort, Leoville-Poyferre's 1999 exhibits a dense black/purple color as well as super-rich black cherry and cassis fruit intermixed with minerals, toast, and vanillin. Fat in the mid-palate, with outstanding concentration, purity, and balance, this alluring, concentrated, impeccably made, delicious 1999 will drink well young, and last for 15+ years. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2018."
