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.

The wine out distances both Leoville Las Cases and Leoville Barton, but all three of them are compelling efforts. Full-bodied, dense purple in color, with floral notes intermixed with blackberries, cassis, graphite and spring flowers, this full-bodied, legendary effort is long and opulent, with wonderfully abundant yet sweet tannin, a skyscraper-like mid-palate and a thrilling, nearly one-minute finish. This spectacular effort from Poyferre that should drink well for 30+ years. Drink 2013-2043. Another spectacular wine from the Cuvelier family, Leoville Poyferre (along with Ducru Beaucaillou) may be one of the two best wines of St.-Julien year after year these days. This is a large estate, covering nearly 200 acres, and the final blend of the 2010 Leoville Poyferre is 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, a whopping 34% Merlot and the rest 7% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc.

Wow. Very intense and aromatic nose with crushed currants and blueberries with hints of nuts and dried flowers. Full body, with very refined tannins and a lovely undercurrent of fruit. Balanced and juicy. Better in 2018.

Medium to deep garnet-brick in color, the 2010 Leoville Poyferre is a little closed and broody to start, soon unfurling to offer glimpses at blackcurrant preserves, chocolate-covered cherries, and dried mulberries, plus wafts of tobacco, pencil lead, and smoked meats. Medium-bodied, the palate has a rock-solid frame of chewy tannins and oodles of freshness supporting the muscular fruit, finishing long and earthy.

This has depth, texture, power, the generosity of Poyferré with the slow steely progression of the vintage - a brilliant mix of the two. Cassis, bilberry, cigarbox, curling woodsmoke, bitter chocolate, rosemary, blue fruit, coffee. There is clear acidity here but it is matched pace for pace by fleshy textured fruit and slate, tugging, slowed-down tannins. Harvest October 1 to 18. 80% new oak.

Dark fruit, introverted. Oak showing strongly on the nose. Then a fine, elegant density on the palate, with lots of structure and incipient flesh starting to fill it out. Very long, embryonic. Drink 2018 - 2035.
