(01-2003) One of the superstar 1983s that is not beginning to crack up and decline, Leoville-Poyferre’s effort exhibits a dark garnet color, a sweet nose of plum liqueur intermixed with licorice, black currants, weedy tobacco, and herbes de Provence. The wine is round, seductive, with a certain degree of opulence, low acidity, gorgeous fruit, and a nice layered palate impression. It makes for quite a seductive style of wine. Drink it over the next 7-8 years. Last tasted, 3/02.

Tom Cannavan (01-1997) Very dense dark ruby/purple. Big nose of brambly, blackcurrant fruit. Very up-front and juicy on the palate Lush, super concentrated black fruits and a nice creaminess. A little more acidity than some others. Finish quite long, fairly smooth, cool and minty. Excellent concentration. A bit of a blockbuster for this rather restrained vintage.

Château 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.
