A gorgeous wine, and still holding back. A beautiful, perfumed red, with cherry, floral aromas. Full-bodied, very velvety, with a lot of fruit and a lovely structure. Will improve.

The 1982 Leoville-Poyferre possesses great concentration, full body as well as considerable structure. A dense purpleplum color reveals some lightening at the rim. Terrific concentration hits the palate with mouth-searing levels of tannin. Full-bodied, thick, structured, muscular, and loaded with potential, this 1982 requires another 5-6 years of cellaring. It should age effortlessly for another 25-30 years. Patience is required.

Leoville Poyferre

The Château of Léoville Poyferré is a second classified growth of Médoc classification in 1855.


During the reign of Louis XIII in 1638, Master John Moytié, ennobled bourgeois Bordeaux and adviser to the Parliament of Bordeaux, had planted a vineyard on a mountain of graves near the river. This place earned the name "Mount Moytié" according to the use of time to designate a place by the name of its owner. Mount Moytié was part of the first historic growths of the Medoc, all born before the Fronde (1648-1653). The Médoc was giving birth to her first parish estates.This beautiful wine from the old Leoville estate north of St. Julien is one of the best terroirs of the appellation and surely the richest of the second growths.


The 80 hectares planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc, give a deep, rich wine.  The Chateau Leoville Poyferre produces elegant wines, very fine, balanced and complex, intense color, and velvety texture, and is disposed to have a very good aging potential.
