After the Lafon Rochet was finished, I figured I’d open a bottle of this 1999 Leoville Poyferre as it has been one of my go-to, ready to drink Bordeaux wines. And although this was a good bottle, it was nowhere as interesting as the Lafon Rochet that preceded it. The fruit was ample enough and so was everything else (acidity, tannins), but for the first time, I thought the flavors were muddles and un-distinctive. I would have liked some more focus from the fruit I also wonder if the tannins are beginning to dry out ever so slightly. This was my last bottle, so I no longer have a dog in this race, but if I still owned any of this, I would try to drink up in the next year or two.
