Chocolate, liquorice, olive tapendade, brambled blackberry and cassis fruits, firm tannins. Deepens through the palate, showcasing layers of flavour that offer both power and concentration. An excellent Poyferré that...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, January 2007

Along with Leoville Las Cases and a few others this is among the stars of the appellation. Made in a more floral supple Margaux-like style the deep ruby/purple-hued 2004 Leoville Poyferre exhibits sweet broad flavors and...

Wine Enthusiast, June 2007

A powerfully extracted wine, which almost—but not quite—submerges what is a fresh, fruity layer. The new wood that goes with the extraction is obvious at this stage in the wine's development, but that cassis fruit will...

Decanter, June 2018

Clear leather and autumnal hedgerow aromatics, showcasing soft bramble fruits and full of life and character. After a slow start, the 2004 vintage is starting to stretch its wings and show some real character. This is a...

TheWineCellarInsider.com, July 2021

Clearly, this is ready to go. It is a soft, easy to like and drink, open, medium-bodied, cherry-filled wine without a lot of depth or complexity or weight. However, there is charm along with touch of herbs and...

With origins dating back to 1638, Saint Julien's expansive Leoville estate was the largest vineyard in all the Medoc at the time of the French Revolution. After various successions and changes, the estate was eventually divided into the three Leoville properties we know today: Leoville-Las-Cases, Leoville-Barton, and Leoville-Poyferre, established in 1840. The outstanding quality of Leoville Poyferre wines gained early recognition when it was ranked second growth in the 1855 Classification.

The various divisions throughout the history of the estate have split the vineyards of Leoville-Poyferre into five large areas. They include all the main types of gravely, well-drained soils present in Saint Julien and a balanced environment for the vines. This diversity contributes to the wines magnitude and complexity.

Chateau Leoville-Poyferre was most recently acquired in 1920 by the Cuvelier family. Didier Cuvelier has presided over the destiny of this gem since 1979. Chateau Moulin-Riche (from a specific terroir) and Pavillon de Leoville-Poyferre (from younger plots of vines) are also produced at the estate.

Chateau Leoville-Poyferre is elegant, finely balanced and complex with intense color, velvety texture and excellent aging potential.
