Wine Advocate (WA)

The 2014 Leoville-Poyferre was surprisingly backward and tight on the nose (usually it is the most expressive and generous Léoville in its youth). The precision and focus is intact, but it is broody and sultry at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with firm structure, which suggests that it has turned volte face since its opulent showing in barrel. Overall, this comes across as perhaps a slightly more austere and masculine wine from Didier Cuvelier, though that is not a criticism, just an observation. I would like to see a little more persistence on the finish, but the tidings bode well for this mercurial and fascinating Léoville-Poyferre. I can see it improving with bottle age, hence the plus sign against my score. - Neal Martin - 09/28/2017

The 2014 Léoville Poyferré is gorgeous. Dark, sumptuous and ample on the palate, it possesses remarkable depth. Dark cherry, plum, smoke, scorched earth, licorice and menthol all flesh out as this radiant, deeply expressive wine shows off its considerable pedigree. The 2014 is going to need time to fully come together, but it is super-impressive. Tasted two times. - Antonio Galloni - 01/02/2017

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. 18–20 months in French oak, 80% new. Malo in barrel. pH 3.66. Deep, slightly smudgy crimson. Still vibrant though a hint of deep brick-red at the rim. It actually smells a little of warm bricks too. Spicy with a hint of incense but still plenty of lively dark-red fruit. Just beginning to show some tertiary notes but not yet undergrowth, more seductively sweet spice. Extremely inviting. On the palate, more tension than in the 2017 and more sinewy but that just increases the freshness. Chewy, finely grained texture also gives freshness. Moreish and like a trailer for future complexity. Lovely balance between fruit and structure in a more modest vintage (in terms of power). Spicy character increases with aeration. (JH) - 03/08/2021
