About Chateau Leoville Poyferre

Chateau Leoville Poyferre underachieved for most of the 20th century. One of three Chateau that made up the original Leoville estate, this second growth was wallowing in the doldrums of mediocrity while its siblings, Chateau Leoville-Las Cases and Chateau Leoville-Barton were producing wines of near First Growth quality. In 1979, however, Didier Cuvelie took the helm of the family business and began its renaissance.

90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2003

($73-$89) Good full medium ruby. Subdued, slightly roasted nose combines cassis, cherry and chocolate mint. Chocolatey-sweet but less deep and expressive than the '02 and '01. Offers good currant and cherry flavors but seems a bit dry-edged and medicinal for a 2000, without quite the harmony of components of the subsequent vintages here.
