"Pure gold, the 2010 Château Léoville Poyferré, which was drunk beside a perfect 2009 Latour, offers everything you could want from wine. Sporting a deep purple hue as well as an incredible array of crème de cassis, graphite, damp earth, leafy tobacco, and beautifully integrated oak, it hits the palate with an incredible amount of fruit and opulence while always staying pure, precise, and as seamless as they come. It shows the density and power of the 2010 vintage, but it’s remarkable in its balance, purity, and length. As with most 2010s today, it's still youthful and certainly in its early drinking plateau and has another 40-50 years of prime drinking."

"The wine out distances both Leoville Las Cases and Leoville Barton, but all three of them are compelling efforts. Full-bodied, dense purple in color, with floral notes intermixed with blackberries, cassis, graphite and spring flowers, this full-bodied, legendary effort is long and opulent, with wonderfully abundant yet sweet tannin, a skyscraper-like mid-palate and a thrilling, nearly one-minute finish. This spectacular effort from Poyferre that should drink well for 30+ years."
"2010 is a sunny vintage reminiscent of 2009, although with lower temperatures. The wine itself shows the classicism of the 2008 vintage and the style of the 2005 with additional power. The new double-wall truncated cone shaped vats allow a real plot-by-plot vinification of the Grand Vin for the first time, enabling a pre-fermentary cold maceration to be carried out in optimum conditions. The results are immediately visible both in the aromatic intensity of the fruit and in the quality of tannins extracted. The Cabernet Sauvignon reveals the purity of its fruit with this vintage.
The 2010 vintage is a deep garnet color with ruby-vermeil highlights, showing pefect evolution.
Rich and complex on the nose, it is bursting with aromas of black fruit, plum, cassis, cedar, and spices.
On the palate, this vintage is imposing with fine-grained tannins. Notes of plum, spices and cedar carry through to the lingering finish. A touch of liquorice adds freshness to this powerful, beautifully balanced wine. A great Saint-Julien of exquisite precision." - Winery
