1983 年出生的朋友請舉手~~ *自己手舉高高*
法國直接進口, perfect condition, the SUPERSTAR of 1983 Bordeaux is here!
——What’s so cool about this Chateau? ——-
St-Julien is often referred to as the “small yet powerful” village of Bordeaux and I truly agree. 1983 is an amazing vintage in Bordeaux (and don’t you dare telling me otherwise!) but over shadowed by the spectacular 1982 vintage. With that said, you often find great value in this vintage, and Leoville Poyferre is my secret find to share with you all today.
Said by Robert Parker and I quote: “Leoville Poyferre has the soil and capacity to produce one of the Medoc’s most profound red wines. In fact, some will argue that Leoville Poyferre has better soil than any of the other second growth in St-Juliens.”
—–The importance of provenance in wine —–
I’m proud to say all my vintage Bordeaux are direct imported from France, either from the Chateau itself or through reputable negociants. I can’t stress enough that wine is alive and two bottles from two different sources won’t be taste same if one of them are not kept in good condition. You might “think” you are saving a few dollar by buying from the cheapest merchant you find online or via secondary market, but it’s not wroth the risk.
With that said, the 1983 Leoville Poyferre I import will be in perfect condition when it arrives in April. I personally guarantee it!

91 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“One of the superstar 1983s that is NOT beginning to crack up and decline, Leoville-Poyferre’s effort exhibits a dark garnet color, a sweet nose of plum liqueur intermixed with licorice, black currants, weedy tobacco, and herbes de Provence. The wine is round, seductive, with a certain degree of opulence, low acidity, gorgeous fruit, and a nice layered palate impression. It makes for quite a seductive style of wine. (RP) ”
Neal Martin’s Wine Journal:
“A dark brick rim with a slightly more opaque garnet core. The nose is attractive and well-defined, with notes of dusty black fruits, singed leather and perhaps even a hint of sawdust. The palate is medium-bodied, very well balanced with surprisingly grippy tannins that coat the mouth with sufficient acidity to maintain freshness despite the austere, masculine finish with touches of dried orange peel inflecting the aftertaste. Good length. A lovely mature claret.”
