Winemaker Notes

Dark, almost black in color. The nose is rich and complex with fresh fruit aromas that mingle with cedar and spicy notes. The attack is frank and fleshy, with a surprising aromatic intensity. The mid-palate is dense, marked by the power and elegance of the tannins, with a a finish that is in perfect continuity with the complexity, intensity, and purity of the vintage.

Blend: 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

WE 98
Wine Enthusiast

A wine of architectural strength and classical proportions, this has straight lines that mark the packed, concentrated fruits, which are sustained by its tannins. This is certainly the best wine that Leoville-Poyferre has produced, sumptuous while so finely structured. Cellar Selection.

The Wine Advocate

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.

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.

WS 93
Wine Spectator

Features a coating of warm cocoa, with notes of solid currant paste, steeped fig and blackberry fruit. The pastis- and graphite-filled finish pumps along, revealing a well-embedded structure that should soften in the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2030.

Chateau Leoville Poyferre
Due to a division of the large Léoville estate, Château Léoville Poyferré was created in 1840 and included as a Second Growth in the famous 1855 Classification. In 1920, the Cuvelier family purchased the estate and Didier Cuvelier has been in charge since 1979.

Major investments were made to bring out the best in the vineyards, and the cellars were also renovated. In 1994, noted consulting oenologist Michel Rolland began to offer his precious... View More
