Once part of the Léoville estates (including Léoville Barton and Léoville Las Cases), Château Léoville Poyferré spreads over 80 hectares in St Julien. It traditionally produced more delicate wines than the other two Léoville but since 1995, with the assistance of Michel Rolland, their wines have gained body and structure and the estate is now considered as one of St Julien’s finest estates. The vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (25%), Petit Verdot (8%) and Cabernet Franc (2%). The wines are aged in barrels for 18-20 months.
“Very tight and energetic finish to this young, new red with currant and blackberry character. Hints of crushed stones. Dense and four-square with a chewy tannin structure and a long finish. Very muscular. Serious encore to the 2016. Same level? 95-96 points” James Suckling, April 2018.
Offered for sale ‘En Primeur’, in bond. Price shown is per case (6x75cl bottles) and excludes UK duty and VAT which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine lands in the UK.
