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.

92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2014

Inky ruby.  Exotic, inviting scents of black cherry, cassis, orange zest, coffee and smoky underbrush.  Fat, sweet and rich, with lively acidity giving noteworthy lift to its rich dark fruit, pepper and cocoa flavors.  Wonderfully delineated Saint-Julien wine with plenty of fleshy substance but more than enough energy to keep it from being weighed down; in fact, this seems almost delicate for such a big wine.  Finishes with soft tannins and lingering notes of pepper and violet.  This is already fun to drink but ought to evolve gracefully for another decade or so.  Should turn out to be one of the stars of the vintage.
