Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Petit Verdot / Cabernet Franc
A very highly rated property, now up with the best of the St-Juliens but still selling at non-scary prices.Owned by the Cuvelier family since 1920, this property over the last 20 years has made some great wines in the Médoc.
Léoville Poyferré has 80 hectares of vineyards in Saint Julien planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (25%), Petit Verdot (8%) and Cabernet Franc (2%) and is classified as a 2ème Cru Classé.
The Chateaux traditionally produced the softest and most supple wine of the 3 Léovilles, yet in the last decade the wines have definitely put on weight and body. This is largely due to the grapes being harvested riper and later and because of the increased exposure to new oak in the maturation process
This is the Second wine of Château Léoville Poyferré, it benefits from the same care as its big brother, both in the vineyard and in the cellars. Bursting with fruit, this bright, attractive wine is accessible in its youth
The 2015 Pavillon de Poyferré is a lovely second wine. Delicate, fragrant and expressive, with pretty red/purplish berry fruit, spice and rose petal nuances, the Pavillon is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. This is a decidedly laid-back style Antonio Galloni, Vinous
