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.

The 2009 Leoville Poyferre is medium to deep garnet-brick in color. It bursts from the glass with bombastic notions of kirsch, raspberry preserves, warm cassis, and stewed plums, plus suggestions of Ceylon tea, candied violets, and Indian spices. Medium-bodied, the palate is soft, plush, and seductive, delivering seamless freshness to lift the perfumed fruit to a long finish.
Gorgeous aromas of blueberries and blackberries, with flowers and minerals. Full body, with silky tannins and a bright acidity on the finish. Tangy and chewy. Muscular. Try in 2018.
Often considered the least impressive of the three Léoville properties, this has outshone its neighbours in 2009, just as it did in 2005. Tightly wound, gutsy wine with dense tannins and a touch of meaty reduction. The fruit underneath is polished and sweet, with lovely balance and perfume. If it develops in the bottle as well as the 2005 has, this is a wine to buy. 15+ years.
Tasted blind. Very concentrated crimson. Introvert and dramatic. Lots of ripeness and (still) lots of tannin. An overall impression of sweet ink that is decidedly promising even if it’s much more backward than most St-Juliens. Just not that gloriously persistent at the moment but pretty monumental.
