Daniel hi,
Do you have the 2002, 2003 kosher versions of the above?

Is this stuff on the level or are you just making it up as you go along? (Groucho)

Bill, Hi....


Following are my most recent tasting notes for the wines in question.

Best
Rogov

Chateau Leoville-Poyferre, St.-Julien, 2002 (Kosher Edition): Dark garnet, full-bodied, with soft tannins and spicy wood integrating nicely to reveal currant and berry fruits and, in the background, pleasing undercurrents of spices and licorice. Best 2007-2011, perhaps longer. Score 89. K (Re-tasted 27 Apr 2005)

Chateau Leoville Poyferre, St.-Julien, 2003 (Kosher Edition): The non-kosher edition of this wine is one of the stars of the 2003 vintage and this kosher edition, while not at that exalted level, is well worth considering. Full-bodied, with good concentration and with its firm tannins starting to integrate and opening to reveal ripe currant, black cherry and purple plums, those on a background of toasty oak. Long and generous but needs time. Best 2009-2015. Score 91. K (Tasted 22 Dec 2006)

Menach, Hi....


Following are my latest tasting notes for the wines in question.

Best
Rogov

Chateau Leoville Poyferre, St.-Julien, 2001 (Kosher Edition): Deep garnet red in color, medium- to full-bodied, with soft, nicely integrating tannins and generous aromas and flavors of plums and spices, those on a nicely spicy background. A long, blackberry finish here. Best drinking 2004 – 2009. Score 88. K (Re-tasted 22 Sep 2003)

Chateau Leoville Poyferre, St.-Julien, 2000 (Kosher Edition): Not quite up to the superb standards of the non-kosher version but an enviably made wine. Full-bodied and well-balanced with firm tannins and spicy wood integrating nicely now. On the nose and palate blackberries, currants, chocolate and garrique, all leading to a generous and mouth-filling finish. Best from 2007-2015, perhaps longer. Score 92. K (Tasted 11 Jan 2003)

Menach, hi - I'm guessing you saw the same internet retailer with the flight of Leoville? :mrgreen:
