2005 LEOVILLE POYFERRE / 波菲

Something about Chateau Leoville Poyferre

With origins dating back to the early seventeenth century, the Second Great Classified Growth Château Léoville Poyferré is one of the most prestigious properties in the Saint-Julien appellation on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region. Under the control of the Cuvelier family, Didier Cuvelier took over the reins of the Saint-Julien estate from 1979, and since then has run the estate with masterful hands.

Great wines come from great terroirs. Bordering illustrious neighbours like Châteaux Latour, Pichon Baron and Léoville Las Cases, Château Léoville Poyferré is famous for its terroir. The fine Garrone gravel soil give the vines the perfect conditions to produce exceptional wines.

From the vineyard to the cellar, Château Léoville Poyferré wines reflect an ongoing quest for perfection. Moments after the harvest, the berries are carefully handled with the greatest respect for the terroir so that the wines can convey the unique identity of the Médoc. Michel Rolland keeps a watchful eye on the parcel vinifications so that the most beautiful expressions of each variety and each plot are gently extracted.

With the purity of fruit and the harmony of oak ageing, the wines of Château Léoville Poyferré offer a bouquet with a broad spectrum of aromas and subtle spice. With wines from an exceptional terroir, this gem of Saint-Julien sparkles with its elegance, finesse and depth that all contributes to the balance and power of the wines. Château Léoville Poyferré are perfectly expressive in their youth, but they can also evolve superbly over the years.

FROM THE
EXPERTS

Léoville Poyferré’s dense ruby/purple 2005 is soft, round and juicy, with lots of blackcurrant fruit, plum and Asian spice. It is medium to full-bodied and, along with Léoville Las Cases and Saint-Pierre, probably one of the best St.-Juliens I tasted in this retrospective. It is surprisingly supple and accessible. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. Drink 2015-2030.

The Château Léoville-Poyferré 2005 has a rich and opulent bouquet with lavish ripe black cherries and wild strawberry, just a touch of licorice rendering it even more extravagant. The palate is full-bodied with ripe, rounded tannin, touches of licorices and glycerin on the mid-palate with savory notes flourishing towards the finish. This is almost a brash, hubristic Saint Julien, one for those who prefer a more opulent style of Bordeaux while maintaining complexity. Chapeau Didier Cuvelier. Drink 2020-2050.

Lots of sexy, exotic aromas to this wine in addition to flamboyant floral undertones. It's full-bodied with a cold tannic texture and flavor that gives the wine a very graphite-like undertone. Drinkable now but better in 2018.

Tasted blind. Dark crimson. Luscious colour! Very healthy look. Very dense, as though the density is locking the aroma in. Big and intense and luscious on the palate. Lots going on here. Drink 2017-2040
