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.

Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2006

($125-$150) Medium ruby-red. Extravagant aromas of currant, loam, leather and graphite; like the 1990 in its roasted character. Then sweet and dense but with surprising aromatic lift in the mouth, not to mention considerable power. Liqueur-like black fruit, licorice and mineral flavors really stain the palate. Cuvelier maintained that this vintage was not acidified. The cabernet acidity, he said, was healthy and the grape skins gave up their acidity slowly during the vinification. A very impressive showing, and built to last.
