About

97

"The plushest, most ostentatious and dramatic of all the Leovilles in 2000, this wine is already sumptuous, displaying some nuances in its huge nose of vanilla bean, black chocolate, jammy black cherries, cassis, and graphite in a flamboyant style. Opulent, savory, rich, and full-bodied, it is a head-turning, prodigious wine and a complete contrast to the extracted behemoth of Leoville Barton and the backward, classic Leoville Las Cases. The Poyferre’s low acidity, sweet tannin and an already gorgeous mouthfeel make it a wine to drink now as well as over the next 25 or more years."

Product Description:

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

The origin of the estate dates back to 1638. At that time, Leoville was the largest Medoc property, fragmented over time and generations. The legacy of the grand vin of Leoville Poyferre began in 1840 and went on to be consecrated as a Second Classified Growth fifteen years later. Didier Cuvelier has presided over the destiny of this gem since 1979.

The Saint Julien appellation is small in size, yet big on talent. In the heart of the famed Medoc vineyard, Château Leoville Poyferre has always been one of the most prestigious estates of this terroir.

Since 1979, our family has been dedicated to a vision that leaves no room for improvisation. Every decision, every investment , is a step towards ultimate quality, one that makes a simple wine an exceptional one, recognized as a Second Classified Growth in 1855." - Winery
