2005 Château Léoville-Poyferré Saint-Julien, Médoc Stuart George April 2, 2010 Tasting Notes At Léoville-Poyferré this great Bordeaux vintage was harvested September 26 to October 8 and produced 230,000 bottles of highly priced wine. Quite closed on the nose at the moment but the palate is sumptuous—smooth, rich, and elegant. Its luscious style means that it can be drunk now or aged to 2025 for more complexity. The blend is 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot. More wine writing by Stuart can be found on his blog, Worcester Sauce.
