Very nicely shaped, with lead pencil, cedar, cassis, incense, and black fruits. May be coming out of a closed period. Good tannis on the finish suggest this wine has 15+ years ahead. Very nice.

Thick dark color, young Bordeaux nose with cherry and dark fruits. In the mouth, strong solid tannins, slightly over acidic and alcoholic, but with good cedar, plum and cherry pit. Should mature nicely over next 10 years.

Part of a blind tasting of Leoville Poyferre, Barton and Las Cases, 1982, 1990, 1996 and 2000 with Acker. Elegent dark fruits and wood.. Medium sweetness with a taste of raisins and leather. Tannins still a little strong, very early, but drinkable.

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.
