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.

95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2012

(a blend of 62.5% cabernet sauvignon, 29% merlot, 6% petit verdot and 2.5% cabernet franc):  Bright medium ruby.  Classic Saint-Julien aromas of cassis, licorice, tar, minerals and dark chocolate.  Lush, sweet and powerful, with a superb glyceral texture to the dark berry and dark chocolate flavors.  Huge wine but not at all heavy.  The extremely long, echoing finish features utterly noble tannins that saturate the front teeth.  Offers a show-stopping combination of sweetness and structure.  Built for three decades of life in bottle.
