This is a beautifully made wine, and certainly one of the two finest made at this estate during the eighties. The color is a healthy dark rubypurple. A classic nose of overripe black currants, plums, and sweet vanillin is followed by a wine with considerable opulence, and a seductive, fleshy mouthfeel. The wine's low acidity and gorgeously pure, rich fruit with copious quantities of glycerin make for a beautiful tasting experience. Although the 1983 has reached full maturity, it exhibits no signs of drying out. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. Last tasted 397.

Leoville Poyferre
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) like "Chateau Margaux", the "Tour de Saint-Lambert" or the "Chateau La Fitte" in Pauillac or the Castle Calon, in Saint-Estephe. 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.
