Med ruby to garnet color with amber rim; lovely ripe nose; slightly less intense than 1990 Leoville Barton or Las Cases but still rich & delicious; well-balanced; soft, integrated tannins; med.-full body; seductive, complex fruit; harmonious, elegant; long complex finish. Fully ready now but continue to drink well for another decade or so.

Part of a blind tasting of Leoville Poyferre, Barton and Las Cases, 1982, 1990, 1996 and 2000 with Acker. Fruit forward nose, cherry and leather. Very well balanced, medium sweetness with a taste of raisins and leather. Tannins still a little strong, but drinking nicely. Will get better.

Can't say enough good things about this bottle. Decanted 2 hours and it was gushing, in a very elegant way. Long finish, great balance, buy more.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
