Wine Critic Reviews:

Slightly one-dimensional, but outstanding. Dark ruby-colored center, verging on purple. Superripe aromas of cassis, berry and mint. Full-bodied, very sleek, with fine tannins and a long, long, caressing finish...

Wine Spectator

Sokolin 1989 Leoville Poyferre Tasting Notes:

It's early in the morning. A gorgeous, purple cluster of Cabernet Sauvignon is slowly waking up and enjoying the first rays of the sun. It gently shakes off a few drops of dew and stretches its youthful, sun kissed leaves towards the sky… Today's the day. Today it's becoming a Leoville Barton.

More precisely, it's how the 1989 Leoville Barton vintage was born. This lively and exciting wine will amaze everyone who approaches with its spectacular, elegant nose of sandalwood, tobacco, and cherry. Quite mouth watering, even before you get to the palate. The tannins make your taste buds dance out of pure joy, unable to calm down until the harmonious ripe berries start fading out in a long, unquestionably pleasant finish. The years may have increased its softness a little, but there's still a promising future ahead of this wine. Drink now or enjoy later.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Leoville Poyferre: With a somewhat shared history with Chateau Leoville Las Cases, the winery known today as Chateau Leoville Poyferre is an influential Bordeaux estate known for producing almost impossibly great reds. Their wines are delightfully smoky and spicy like you're juggling the finest cigar with the finest wine - not a bad combination if you ask us. The fruit is rich, intense and pure, and the espresso combines with decadent cocoa to create lovely warmth and a creamy, irresistible texture. The finish is plump and generous, and you should plan to drink several glasses if you intend on touching even one. We can't picture a wine enthusiast that would complain about or refuse a glass of Chateau Leoville Poyferre's fine red elixir.

Region Bordeaux: Even among the greatest and most reputable wine regions on the planet, Bordeaux stands above the rest. The winemakers of this region have a single-minded dedication to the fine art of viticulture and their efforts never fail to show. If you consider yourself a fine wine enthusiast, you owe it to yourself to visit Bordeaux - life changing. Whether you wish to drink some inspirational and gripping wine as soon as possible, or you want to add some masterpieces to your collection, no region on Earth is a more obvious choice. The noble and beautiful Garonne and Dordogne rivers surge through southwestern France, enriching the soil in a way very few other places can boast. The limestone-based earth is rich in calcium, and the almost oceanic climate conditions give the staple Bordeaux grape varietals vigor and flavor like nowhere else. For their illustrious reds, Bordeaux winemakers rely on a proven combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Meanwhile, a sip of their excellent white wine hints at the use of Semillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc.Each of these varietals carries a unique identity, making every quality wine a character piece to rival Citizen Kane. It can be incredibly hard to choose only a few wines to collect for your cellar!
Type of Wine Bordeaux Red: Picture in your mind a combination of cedar, lead pencil, blackcurrant, plum and mineral aromatics, and texture that caresses your palate like a playful lover. The experience is thrilling from the first whiff to the final seconds of a tannic, generous finish - that is what you'll get from a Bordeaux Red
