Wine tasting note: 1996 Leoville Poyferre Saint Julien

1996 Leoville Poyferre Saint Julien

12th Aug 1999 GBP29 Bordeaux Table Red

Dense, opaque purple with very slight paling at rim.
Deep and dumb with mint, cassis and some leaf - immense.
Full-bodied with rich bramble and cassis, high acidity, ripe but firm tannins and lovely length with some oak showing through.
Still very simple and undeveloped, but astonishingly attractive already.
