"The flagship 2019 Château Léoville Poyferré is based on 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, and the balance Petit Verdot. It's one of the bigger, richer wines in the vintage and has a gorgeous, thrilling, full-bodied style as well as notes of crème de cassis, tobacco leaf, violets, and chocolate. While many estates seem to be playing it safe and focusing on so-called elegance and balance, I love that Poyferré continues to make a ripe, sexy, beautifully textured wine that always offers more opulence and sexiness than most in the vintage. Ranking with the crème de la crème of the vintage, this gorgeous Poyferré can be enjoyed any time over the coming 40-50 years. Bravo! Best after 2022."

"Chewy and rich this year with lots of ripe tannins and solid depth of fruit. Chocolate and walnuts to the blue fruit. It’s full-bodied. Plenty of fruit at the end. Excellent length."

"A rich and highly charged Poyferré, with creamy damson and vanilla pod spice expanding through the mid palate. Hugely impressive, with velvety tannins and plenty of charcoal, grilled sarments and slate impact. Higher tension through the core would take the score up even further. 4% Cabernet Franc completes the blend. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the estate under the ownership of the Cuvelier family."

"Cask sample. 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot.
Deep dark red with opaque core and purple at the rim. Intense aroma of cassis and cedar but also a more savoury black, charry note, almost tarry, but pure. Fabulously dry tannins, grainy but not thick. Really fresh even with this higher alcohol. Powerful, deeply fruited and finishes deliciously dry without being in the least astringent. Lots of embryonic, upright pleasure even though it is nowhere near ready to drink. 18/20 points. (JH)"
Karen MacNeil, The Wine Bible
"Imagine eating milk chocolate candy bars your whole life and then someone gives you a piece of intense, 80 percent cacao dark chocolate. A whole new sensory universe opens in the chocolate center of your brain. That's how I've felt about the last several vintages of Leoville-Poyferre. The structure and intensity are formidable. The flavor is molecularly dense. The texture is molten softness. And yet the wine is not bombastic or out of balance. Indeed it is thrilling to see the flavors of Bordeaux taken to the nth power."
