Description

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 2016 Le Pavillon de Léoville-Poyferré has gained quite a bit of finesse during the course of its aging. Mid-weight, pliant and silky, the 2016 is gorgeous today. Ripe red/purplish berry and floral notes are beautifully layered. Above all else, the 2016 exudes balance and class. 92pts. Antonio Galloni, Vinous
