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.

The 2014 Léoville Poyferré is impressive. A big, broad-shouldered St. Julien, the 2014 blossoms in the glass with superb depth and richness. Dark red cherry, plum, spice, menthol, crushed flowers, herbs and leather are some of the notes that burst onto the palate in an energetic, tightly wound Poyferré. The 2014 finishes with notable depth and huge, explosive intensity, all of which suggest it will require considerable cellaring. This is without question one of the stars of the vintage.

It has one of the most opulent set of aromatics of the appellation, with crème de cassis, boysenberry jam and macerated small dark cherries - an extravagant bouquet in the context of the growing season. The palate is full-bodied with great density and power. There is a lot of weight in this St Julien, spicy in the mouth with a healthy pinch of white pepper towards the finish that feels long in the mouth, although I would like to see more finesse coming through by the time of bottling. As usual, this one of the most decadent St Julien wines, but one that is well-crafted by Didier Cuvelier. Give this several years in bottle.

Intense in hue with silky, bright tannins, this wine offers the palate an assortment of plump, ripe, dark-red skinned fruit and a long, lingering finish with distinctive depth, structure, balance and brightness in the end notes.
