Château-Leoville-Poyferre St. Julien 1988
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Julien|
A slightly green '88, with tobacco and fruit underneath. Full-bodied, with slightly tough tannins and a medium finish.--1988 Bordeaux horizontal. Drink now.
The 1988 Leoville-Poyferre, which is austere and super-charged with tannin, exhibits leanness and a lack of fruit and charm. It will age well, but will it ever provide much pleasure? Anticipated maturity: 1994-2006.
