Sommelier's Notes

The origin of Léoville goes back to 1638. Following various divisions and successions, Léoville Poyferré was born in 1840. In the 1855 classification of Médoc wines, it was endowed with the rank of Second Grand Cru Classé. 


Located in the prestigious Saint-Julien appellation, the vineyard covers different types of gravel soils, which contribute to the amplitude and complexity of its wines. 


In 1920, the Cuvelier family acquired Château Léoville Poyferré (58 hectares), as well as Château Moulin Riche (22 hectares). 


Established in 1885 on a terrace of more ancient gravel, Château Moulin Riche is named after its local “place-name”. The wines offer more supple tannins and another expression of the appellation. Quite accessible in its youth, it presents the balance and the elegance characteristic of Saint-Julien. 


Pavillon de Léoville Poyferré, second wine of both châteaux, is made from the younger vines. 


Bursting with fruit, this bright, attractive wine is accessible in its youth.


Enjoy it in anticipation of the finesse, elegance, and balance of the Grand Vin.
