‘All the press wines were very good. The Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon were magnificent. The Merlots had a bit of a gap in the mid-palate, but the blends have been amazing’, said Didier Cuvelier - and indeed Poyferré is magnificent this year. Very deep colour, purple to black. Pure cassis as sweet as anything, really lovely dry concentration undistracted by any puppy fat. Powerful. (‘We do Rating: 92 L&S (Apr 2005)

Robust and earthy autumn fruits on the nose with a slightly rustic palate showing good density of fruit and acidity. A good wine with a fine future. Drinking range: 2014 - 2022 Rating: 89 Decanter Magazine (Sep 2014)

Bright ruby-red. Very expressive nose offers redcurrant, tobacco, flowers and nutty oak. Supple, silky and pliant but with good energy to its red fruit and floral flavors. Finishes with broad, sweet tannins and a lingering note of tobacco. This remains quite open and appears to be evolving very much like the 2001.

Particularly deep crimson. Hidden but intriguing nose. Some tobacco and leather. Lots there, all buried and unexposed. Great concentration and depth but just a bit stolid. Lots of firm but ripe tannins. This should make good but not great old bones. Drink 2010-20 Rating: 17+ Jancis Robinson OBE MW - (Apr 2005)
