Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

92 WS / 91 WA

Firm, lean and structured with rich, ripe concentrated cassis, currant and plum fruit that's polished and full-bodied, finishing with vanilla and plum. The tannins are in proportion, finishing firm and dry. - Wine Spectator

Apposite the 1986 Leoville-Poyferre there is great difference in colour, the 1985 is less opaque with much more maturity on the its brick rim. The nose is quintessential for the vintage, ripe and generous, perhaps almost extrovert with notes of blackberries, sandalwood, hung game and chestnut. The palate is medium-bodied, lovely fleshy texture but with firm, very fine tannins behind it. Roasted meats, spice, dates and game all vie for attention, whilst the finish is very harmonious and focused with a long aftertaste. Just a lovely claret to consume now, as I doubt it will get much better. Drink now-2015 Tasted March 2008 - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
