Wine Critic Reviews:
Absolutely spectacular, the 1990 Leoville Poyferre is much more evolved than either of its two Leoville neighbors. Its opaque plum/garnet color is accompanied by a gorgeous bouquet of smoke, charcoal, creme de cassis, and flowers. Fleshy and opulent, it comes across like a St.-Julien with a Pomerol texture and allure. This beauty has reached full maturity where it should remain for another two decades.
Sokolin 1990 Leoville Poyferre Tasting Notes:
Some wines are so good, your entire perspective on wine hunting and winemaking undergoes a quiet transformation. Tasting these wines is a unique, mind-broadening experience, one that most people cherish for decades after. This lovely Lafite Rothschild can most certainly produce that effect and makes it look easy. A brick-infused garnet color rolls out the red carpet for an intoxicating, mouth-watering nose of creme de cassis, black pepper, smoked duck and ripe, jammy plum. Once you wrap your lips around the wine, your palate gets to experience the almost impossibly intricate and complex textural profile on display. Even the sharpest, most inquisitive minds might demand multiple tastings in order to deconstruct this masterpiece of a wine. The finish is almost impossibly long, and just as layered and complex as what came before. Wines like this are great as conversation pieces and will work well as either tasteful gifts or dinner party showstoppers, so don't hesitate to uncork one if the situation calls for it.

|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!|

|Varietal||Bordeaux Blend: Since its birth in France, the art of Bordeaux-inspired blends has been brought to regions like California, and Washington, where New World visionaries add their own unique spin to the formula, creating mouth-watering tributes to Bordeaux's viticultural greatness.
