Wow! I tried this a few years ago and resolved to wait. It was worth it. The nose was distinctive and quite strong. Initial notes of earth and old furniture on the nose along with a bit of spice. Mouthfeel is good and the initial flavor and tannins give way to rich coating layers of fruit and a taut and lingering finish. This was a stellar bottle.

Lots of up-front fruit, soft and ready. Lite soft tannins with light acidity. The wine is ready to drink.

A boatload of Indian spices (such as curry, cumin and chili powder) filled the air so vividly, I assumed Cos d'Estournel due to it's distinct spice profile. Flowers, rich cassis and mocha spice were present in copious quantities, clearly stamping Poyferre's place on the 'big time wine' category. The loads of dark fruits and bitter chocolate simply wouldn't quit as they sailed on the ripened-to-perfection tannic backbone. Unreal...just wait 5 more years and then see what happens.

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.
