Wine Enthusiast, April 2010
A powerful extracted wine very concentrated. The tannins are dense giving a sense of tight texture while underneath the ripe fruits are pulsing with fresh acidity as well as sweet berry flavors.

Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Leoville-Poyferre has a tightly wound bouquet at first, although it unfurls to reveal attractive cedar and undergrowth-tinged black fruit, dried blood and cured meat aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy texture, a fine thread of acidity and a grippy, almost Pauillac-like, graphite finish that lends body and focus. This showing at ten years suggests that, after differing performances in its youth, this Saint Julien has settled into a groove; in fact, I envisage it maturing with style over the next 15-20 years. Tasted February 2017. - Neal Martin

Wine Spectator, March 2010
Offers subtle aromas of smoky wood fresh herbs and dark fruits. Full-bodied with a solid core of fruit and soft silky tannins. Very well-crafted and polished for the vintage. Much better than from barrel. Best after 2012... Offers subtle aromas of smoky wood fresh herbs and dark fruits. Full-bodied with a solid core of fruit and soft silky tannins.

Medium ruby-red. Cassis and minerals on the nose with complicating notes of mocha cardamom black tea menthol and licorice.

Cassis and minerals on the nose with complicating notes of mocha cardamom black tea menthol and licorice. A juicy suave densely packed midweight with very good energy and intensity to its cassis graphite and fresh herb flavors. Quite dry but not hard finishing with building tongue-dusting tannins and notes of herbs and tobacco leaf.

Winery

Leoville-Poyferre

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.
