Tasting Notes:

Very deep, dark color. Brilliant. On the nose, very fresh, spicy, empyreumatic (hints of coffee). The attack is powerful and fleshy. On the palate, there is plenty of freshness, beautifully fine and elegant tannins. Really persistent and powerful, reminiscent of the great vintages to keep.

Thanks to its distinguished past, and through the efforts and investments of the last three decades, Château Léoville Poyferré has regained its level of excellence: – The 80-hectare vineyard has undergone an ambitious program of planting and restructuration (over 20 years). – The modern winemaking facilities illustrate the perfect balance between modernity and tradition, featuring the latest technological advances, while the barrel cellars respect the Médocain traditions. – Our dynamic winemaking team is always in search of improvement. – Our hospitality and wine tours team is ready to welcome visitors from around the world.

The vineyard of Château Léoville Poyferré sits on gravely, well drained soils that create a balanced environment for the vines. Soil analysis is the basis for vineyard practices, which are adapted to the condition of the vineyard (tillage, earthing up…)

Vinification is mainly focused on the quality and finesse of the tannins, characterized by research and innovation in maintaining qualitative tradition and lineage of the style of Léoville Poyferré. The 27 double-walled tanks are used for cold pre-fermentation macerations for 6 days. The extraction of color occurs gradually and pure fruit aromas are revealed.

Particular care is taken in the selection of barrels for subtle oak in harmony with the wines. The wines are aged in barrels for 18-20 months. Michel Rolland provides advice for vinification and blending.
