(03-2008) A very deep garnet core – much more youthful and opaque compared to the previous vintage. The nose is far more introverted than the ’85 with tobacco, graphite and tar. It seems to be coiled up, demanding a few more years before it unfurls its aromas. After ten minutes in glass, it begins to reveal an attractive minty aroma, greater freshness and precision. The palate is full-bodied, much more tannic and a little drier than the ’85. On the surface, the previous vintage is more appealing but this has more depth and structure with a grainy-textured, savoury finish. It does not have the breeding of Las-Cases across the road, yet it is still a great Poyferre to enjoy over the next decade.  Drink now-2025.

(09-2004) Dark red color. Good intensity. Evolved. Nose of medium intensity. End. Fruity. Costs. Wall. Cedar. Civet. Very soft entry in the mouth, developing on a fine touch, then the wine is slender and at the same time ripe and juicy. Very Cabernet Sauvignon. Nice melting length, sappy and liquoricey. It's fine and very, very good. Looks like 86 with the maturity of 89.

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.
