Leoville-Poyferre is making greater and greater efforts to push the quality level closer to that of its neighbor, Leoville-Las-Cases. The hiring of the famed oenologist, Michel Rolland, the beginning of malolactic fermentation in barrel (started in 1994), a stricter selection process, and the construction of a superb new cuverie are all signs that Leoville-Poyferre is set to emerge as one of the stars of the northern Medoc. The dark ruby/purple-colored 1994 offers up scents of toasty vanilla and sweet blackcurrant fruit. This medium-bodied claret possesses good fat, moderate tannin, and a traditional, backward, overall feel. Although still youthful, there is enough fruit to balance out the wine's tannin. This should develop into an excellent wine with 2-3 more years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2015. Feb 1997, www.robertparker.com
