Why Buy Me

Traditionally the least good of the three Leoville properties (Barton and Las Cases are the other two). Poyferré has outstripped its cousins since the mid 1980’s; today it is peerless in St Julien and one of the best Chateau in all Bordeaux. 

18 months in barriques, 80% New Oak

Winemaker's Pitch

Deep, opaque ruby. Toasted spices and rich cassis on the nose. Initially grippy and firm, the mouth-coating tannins are gradually enveloped by decadent black fruit. A more extractive, modern style, this is nonetheless impressive and balanced. Plump and plush through to the finish, with sweet clove and nutmeg spice lingering together with the kirsch-like fruit. Jancis Robinson 17/20 Points . The Wine Advocate 94 points.
